There were a lot of things we couldn't do in an SR-71, but we were the fastest guys on the block and loved reminding our
fellow aviators of this fact. People often asked us if, because of this fact, it was fun to fly the jet. Fun would not
be the first word I would use to describe flying this plane. Intense, maybe. Even cerebral. But there was one day in
our Sled experience when we would have to say that it was pure fun to be the fastest guys out there.
