The first trip turned out to involve trains so not thinking about it until after the second trip was planned it came to me that we were on sort of a pattern.
We went to Robbins AFB museum!

Nice pictures and sounds like you just might have enjoyed yourselves. By the way you get double Ford points on this plane, Flown by the Thunderbirds but it was called the Fighting Falcon.

This pic raises the age old question... How many people on an air force base does it take to change a light bulb?

Something about this pic I really love.


There was a "start cart" next to the SR-71. Interesting fact: The original start carts were Buick wildcat 401 cubic inch V-8 engines developing 400 horsepower. There were two Buick engines mounted tandem side by side with automatic transmissions. They were coupled together to drive a vertical shaft that was inserted into the starter mechanism on the bottom of the SR-71's engine. On engine launch there was one AG-330 Buick for each SR engine. For the first time observer of an SR-71 launch, the engine starts in themselves were almost indescribable. For one thing there was no mufflers on the Buick engines. As the Buick RPM was advanced, Flames almost three feet long erupted from the side of the start cart. It truly sounded like the beginning of the Indianapolis 500. Combine that sound with the steady increase of SR-71 RPM to engine TEB ignition at 3,200 RPM and then idle aircraft engine speed as the Blackbird comes to life. Then it all starts all over again with #1 engine. I bet it was a thrill to start the Blackbirds engines with the Start Carts. The original design was conceived by two Lockheed Skunk Works engineers who had prior race car engine knowledge. In the mid-1970's, the engines of the start carts was changed to Chevrolet LS-7 454's. The Chevrolet big block engines developed 465 horsepower each.
