Lockheed SR-71 Owners Workshop Manual
Davies, Steve & Crickmore, Paul
An excellent book on one of the world's greatest aircraft! It follows in Haynes tradition of 'manual' style books on equipment we'd love to own with fascinating detail gained from people who were intimately involved with the Blackbird, or 'Habu' as it was known amongst those who flew it. As well as detail of its genesis, history and missions there is plenty of detail on equipment, engines and of particular interest to myself, what it was like to actually fly one. The book includes a full list of the fate of each aircraft and a glossary of terms used. Full of photographs, diagrams and detail but still very readable. Highly recommended.
