    These shots are always AMAZING!!!!! … I spent 4yrs in the USAF, my second love aircraft.. We had 3 SR71’s stationed on our base, Kadena, Okinawa. As an Air Traffic Controller, I worked in the tower for awhile, then down in the ATC Center. While in the tower, whenever the “Black Bird” came in, I had to leave. As a Canadian, with no top secret clearance at the time…. Yet all the locals could sit on the end on the runway and photo to their hearts content. Never could understand that!!!!
