SR-71 “Blackbird” Skybound At Museum of Aviation In Georgia!
WARBIRD RADIO – The Museum of Aviation in Warner Robins, Georgia recently elevated their SR-71 “Blackbird” into a nose-up “take off’ position in their Century of Flight Hangar. A combined team of Robins Air Force Base aircraft crash recovery personnel completed an annual exercise earlier this April to raise the aircraft’s front landing gear seven feet off the hangar floor and the rear landing gear four feet high. Several large rubber bladders inflated by 100 hoses were used to elevate the fuselage and put the aircraft on three sturdy steel pedestals.
