Aircraft #61-7980 first flew on 25 September 1967 and was given the nickname "Rosemary's Baby-San" while operational with the 9th Strategic Reconnaissance Wing. In 1990 it had a change of ownership when it was handed over to NASA for use in its high-speed research programs. This SR-71 holds the distinction of being the last SR-71 to fly, an event that took place in October, 1999. This aircraft is currently on display inside the main gate at NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center at Edwards AFB, California.

Lockheed SR-71A Blackbird

Designed as a long-range, strategic reconnaissance aircraft, The Lockheed SR-71 first flew on December 22, 1964. Nicknamed "The Blackbird," this highly-advanced aircraft was believed by many to be ahead of its time. It was capable of mach 3 and still holds the record for the fastest "air breathing manned aircraft" in the world. Its speed and ability to operate at high altitudes served as a defensive feature; when attacked by surface-to-air missiles, the pilot needed only to accelerate to avoid being struck. Only 32 SR-71's were operated during its 34-year service history, and though 12 were destroyed in accidents none were lost to enemy attack.
