Fun at Hiller Aviation Museum!

This morning I went to the Hiller Aviation Museum at San Carlos Airport to hear Richard Luehring talk about his experiences as an RSO (Reconnaissance Systems Officer) on the SR-71. He accumulated over 2,100 flying in the SR-71.

I enjoyed hearing him talk about his incredible confidence in the team at Lockheed responsible for designing and building this amazing aircraft – including Kelly Johnson of Lockheed’s Skunk Works. The Pratt & Whitney J-58 engines were equally amazing (“In Thrust We Trust” was P&W’s motto!).

While waiting for the lecture to begin, I shot the photo below just using my iPhone 4. The model was hanging in the ceiling above the audience. I loved the peaceful nature of the image and the lighting.
