The Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird-962. Isn't she magnificent? This is in the American hangar at Duxford and very difficult to get a decent shot of as there's so many people wandering around and clutter everywhere. But it's so special I had to do it and try to make something of it. It holds the speed and altitude record for a jet engined aircraft (or so I've read - that might have changed by now but I don't know).
V2's the original shot so you can see it in context.
I'm so pleased you've liked my aircraft pics this week. You always wonder how things are going to go when you try something new so I'm very heartened by your responses. Thank you.
