    Fantastic book if you are interested in Blackbirds and there development.

    I am very interested in the not only development, but the technological aspects of the the whole Blackbird program from the A-12 to the SR-71 and how they came about during the Cold War, and Why??

    This is a must read if you want the facts about the OXCART program, also The Blackbird Production Summary, The Blackbird Timeline, and Special Events from 1955 to 1999.

    I really became interested in The Blackbird Program last month Feb. 2010 after visiting the USS Alabama Museum in Mobile, Alabama. They have on display there an A-12 , Article # 132. It was the 2nd to last A-12 Built, in the 1st run of The Blackbird Series, later to become the SR-71 that most of us recogonize.

    What most intrigued me about the plane is a cool piece of trivia that I read while at the museum in Mobile, if you fired a rifle from the West Coast of the US to the East Coast and the bullet could keep going and not loose it's velocity, and the Blackbird took off at the same time and flew the same path at full speed, the plane would beat the bullet by 7 mins. Coast to Coast!!!

    The book also comes with a CD that you can play in your computer, that shows pictures and videos of the Blackbird Program, different planes, and flights.

    Overall like I said the book is a must have if you are interested in these Cold War Birds, and how they came about.
