Lockheed Blackbird by Paul F. Crickmore
Book DescriptionIn this book, expert author Paul Crickmore leads the reader deeper than ever before into the 'Black World' of the A-12 and SR-71 top-secret reconnaissance mission. For the first time, detailed accounts from CIA and USAF pilots bring to life the experience of flying highly classified missions in the Blackbird, whilst Allied and former Warsaw Pact fighter pilots describe their efforts to intercept the spy-plane. Travelling more than a mile every 2 seconds and flying fifteen miles above the earth's surface, the SR-71's performance capacities were truly awesome. This book draws on hundreds of newly declassified Top Secret documents and the author's own key military contacts to provide the most detailed information available on the SR-71.

Representing the pinnacle of Cold War aircraft design and it has become an aviation icon together with its predecessor, the A-12, the Blackbird was a giant leap into the technical unknown and the design employed many forms of new technology made necessary by the excesses of speed, altitude and temperature to which the aircraft was subjected.

Author Biography - Paul F. Crickmore
During his thirteen years at the London Air Traffic Control Centre, Paul Crickmore gained his Pilot's Licence and flew a large number of RAF and USAF fast jets. In October 1981, he was granted a special security clearance to fly in a KC-135Q during the operational refuelling of an SR-71 from RAF Mildenhall, granting him access to a world usually hidden from non-programme members. Since that flight Crickmore has become an expert authority on the Blackbird or 'Habu', and has written numerous articles and books about military aviation.
