Do you think it s easy to get access to one of these planes The venerable SR71 Blackbird, all the surviving ones being safely guarded in museums Not so much. But if you recognize and love this plane as I do, you ll want this shot hanging on your wall. It is my homage, a form of nose art for a plane whose time came after that illustrative era but has sex appeal brimming over and in need of temperance at the hands of a beautiful leading lady.
The Blackbird s unique poison dart appearance helped make it fast enough to outrun enemy missiles, flying at over three times the speed of sound some 15 miles in the sky. The titanium used to build this plane and help it sustain the outrageous pressures and heat during operation was surreptitiously purchased from Russia, the country it was largely used to spy on. All my work delivered as high definition image infused into aluminum metal sheet with high gloss coating providing an almost three dimensional fidelity.
