Shelves: experiential Sled driver is about flying the SR71 Blackbird. This is an amazingly compelling read. It is like waking up one morning and suddenly finding you can read a new language Miss a turn by a second or two, and you are in a completely different state.
Flying more than a thousand miles an hour. The numbers they banter about in this book are simply incomprehensible, but the Sled driver is about flying the SR71 Blackbird. The numbers they banter about in this book are simply incomprehensible, but the anecdotes the numbers are contained within are amazing, amusing, and several other alliterative verbs.
This is a book for anyone who likes to marvel. I loved watching the big bird land with the bright scarlet parachute behind. The pilots were legendary. This was an enjoyable view inside the cockpit that made you wish you could have been there. Sep 28, Richard rated it it was amazing This book gets five stars just for the incredible discipline and skill necessary to fly this airplane.
Out of print, so far as I know? Find a copy, if you have any interest in aviation. Major Shul, hats off and a sincere salute to you, from a far less talented, less accomplished airman.
