Afterburner: A Blackbird’s Thunderous Visit

Before “Maverick” buzzed the tower in TOP GUN, this happened in real-life …
Below is one of those smiles for miles aviation stories. Even though the link below is a video, you’re going to need speakers or headphones to take in the fun-tastic story. Also, make sure you stick around until the very end, because it keeps getting better. Please give it a listen and let us know if you were there!

Because we always get asked, “Can you get the SR-71 Blackbird at the Airshow?”
We’d love to have an SR-71 at the California Capital Airshow. Unfortunately, all the SR-71’s and A-12’s have been retired form service and relegated to museums. If you get a chance, getting up close to a SR-71 Blackbird is one those aviation bucket list items.

So press play for a smile, and don’t forget, there will be plenty of AFTERBURNER this weekend!
