The best of Kelly Johnson‘s work, an amazing Lockheed SR-71 “Blackbird” was a long-range, Mach 3+ strategic reconnaissance aircraft. This airplane was developed as a black project from the Lockheed A-12 reconnaissance aircraft in the 1960s by its “Skunk Works” division. This shell is on display in front of San Diego Air & Space Museum.
