SR-71 “Blackbird” Skybound At Museum of Aviation In Georgia!

SR-71 Museum of Aviation - Warner RobinsWARBIRD 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.  For more information on the Museum of Aviation just click on the Quick Link posted below.
