Photo Panoramas ~ National Air & Space Museum, VA

This is a collection of Panoramic Photos I took during a field trip with my kids to learn about the history of flight, and to check out the famous Black Bird featured in Transformers 3, as a Decepticon. They totally loved the experience. The Smithsonian Institution did an awesome job of blending the Transformers Movie theme with the real spy plane. I have also added some still photos that I found rather fascinating.

The Lockheed SR-71 “Blackbird” was an advanced, long-range, Mach 3+ strategic reconnaissance aircraft.[1] It was developed as a black project from the Lockheed A-12 reconnaissance aircraft in the 1960s by Lockheed and its Skunk Works division. Clarence “Kelly” Johnson was responsible for many of the design’s innovative concepts. During reconnaissance missions the SR-71 operated at high speeds and altitudes to allow it to outrace threats.
