I remember I had this Silver Notebook it was called 'Wheels and Wings' and I'd get little leaflets with different cars, motorcycles and planes, and finally one day I got a pack of leaflets with the SR-71 in it, and I instantly fell in love with this plane. It's always been one of my favorites along with the stealth bomber, but this thing is an engineering marvel and it had to be amazing to build it, but also to pilot it.

That is so neat! The first time I saw the SR-71 I was in awe. Other jet fighters had the same overall shape of other planes, but this was a piece of art. It looked as though it came from another planet altogether. Or straight from the pages of a sci fi novel.
