"Designed at the height of the Cold War to be the ultimate surveillance platform, the SR-71 was operated exclusively by the USAF's 9th Strategic Reconnaissance Wing. In this new edition of Paul Crickmore's best-selling history, the fruits of an alliance between NASA and the Lockheed project (which began when NASA engineers lent a ha nd at Edwards AFB way back in 1967) are reviewed, as the 'space men' use the SR-71 for experiments on the outer edge of the atmosphere. Also new is a complete list of USAF missions flown out of Kadena, detailing duration, pilots, Reconnais s a n c e S y s tems Officers, altitude, etc. It is a fascinating addition to the history of operational flights over North Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, North Korea, Yemen, the Lebanon, Libya, Egypt, Syria, Iran and Cuba....Also revealed are details o f fl ig ht s c on du ct ed from Beale AFB, in California and RAF Mildenhall, Suffolk, England, into the Arctic Circle and over the Baltic to monitor the movements of Soviet nuclear submarines. With more than 250 illustrations, and full appendices p ro vid ing te ch ni cal sp eci fications and performance data, there is no more definitive work on this extraordinary aircraft."
