The SR-71 Blackbird Gets a Dusting

When you walk in the door at the Cosmosphere, the SR-71 Blackbird is hanging overhead. Like anything else, it occasionally requires a little cleaning. This afternoon was the time.

Dante, Dustin and Bill were making everything spic and span for this weekend's Apollo 13 celebration.

It was America's first "stealth" plane, although its greatest defensive technique was its speed - literally faster than a speeding bullet.

Bill also worked on the T-38 to get it ready for this weekend.


  1. It's just incredible to see someone standing up there! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Glad you enjoyed it. Everything has to be cleaned, I guess!
