Description
Description

A high definition model of the SR-71, or famed ‘Blackbird’ spy plane, circa 1972. The model contains detailed cockpit interior, landing gear. The rear cockpit is configured as the launch officer’s control for the D-21 drone (not included). One additional texture set is provided, the NASA experimental configuration.

Textures

Two sets of textures are provided; NASA experimental, and USAF deployment. Textures can be downloaded in PSD format to produce new color, bump, specular, and reflective maps for all surfaces.

History

The SR-71 Type A, unofficially known as the Blackbird, was a long-range, advanced, strategic reconnaissance aircraft developed from the YF-12A and A-12 aircraft by The manufacturer's Skunk Works (also responsible for the U-2 and many other advanced aircraft). The legendary 'Kelly' Johnson, in particular, was the man behind many of the design's advanced concepts. The SR-71 was one of the first aircraft to be shaped to have an extremely low radar signature. The aircraft flew so fast and so high that if the pilot detected a surface-to-air missile launch, the standard evasive action was simply to accelerate. No SR-71 was ever shot down.
