Duxford SR71 by WS-Clave Duxford SR71 by WS-Clave
From a visit to Duxford Museum in 2008.

This hall is the American Air Museum, looking back from the 'window end' at the SR-71 (engines removed) you can also see the curve of the building, which is a sort of 'cut-off teardop' shape...

It is impressive, and as an ex-missile technician, I was fascinated by the engines - I understand how ramjets work, and normal turbojets... but to combine the two? that's insane genius right there...

lol :D

It does make you blink a little.. It's good to get close to (and touch) there's something 'grainy' about it - it's not quite like any other plane.

Stealth paint? I figure that must feel somewhat like the skin of a ray. Or rough plastic.

It's made of titanium alloy resist the temperature and painted very dark blue, but it felt smooth enough... I would guess that an F-117A would feel different as the surface finish has advanced since then...

Yes... I think I wanna go and feel an F-117. Now if they'd only let me...
