    unusual SR71

    So, how did Zaph choose this name. Sleeper interest?

    But oc he had the Blackbird in the back of his head. In my experience almost every audio DIY'er is a nerd at heart (myself included). :twisted:

    Awesome airplane... :P

      ESPECIALLY considering how old it is, and the way they chose to solve a lot of difficult engineering problems- very creative if initially risky design.

        Heheh, yup: Seas Reed 7" / 1" But, I am indeed a fan of the Blackbird and the first enclosure I built had a steathy all black look to it, so it was a multi-purpose name.

        Back when I was in my early 20's, a SR71 came to the EAA (Experimental Aircraft Association) In Oshkosh, WI. The EAA is the world's largest fly-in convention. Seeing one fly by right over me is pretty inspirational. Nothing combines graceful beauty and raw power quite like the SR71. Not a whole lot of people got to see one fly before it was retired. Every year we get a Harrier, some years we get F-22 but we'll never get an SR71 again.

          I got to see a Lockheed B2-bomber doing fly-bys over Luke air force base in Arizona in 2007, probably the coolest and most unexpected experience for me (when it comes to airplanes).



          Where I live we get to see these passing over us almost daily... :P

            I love the Gripen, and was privileged to work on some of the software that flies on it. Unfortunately, I never got to see one fly in person.
