An Important Note on the SR-71
We’d love to have an SR-71 at the California Capital Airshow. Unfortunately, all the SR-71s and A-12s have been relegated to museums these days. If you get a chance, getting up close to a SR-71 Blackbird is one those aviation bucket list items. The closest publicly viewable SR-71 can be seen at Castle Air Museum in Atwater, California.
Please keep an eye on your inbox for the survey, thanks!
Until next week,
