    Aircraft #61-7972 rolled off the assembly line on September 15ht, 1966 and first flew on December 12th, 1966. Over the next 23 years, it flew numerous missions with the 9th Strategic Reconnaissance Wing, eventually racking up 2801.1 flight hours. In 1974 it set the world speed record flying from New York to London in 1 hour, 54 minutes, 56 seconds and then later in 1980 set another record flying from Los Angeles to Washington DC in 1 hour, 7 minutes. While operational in 1975, it wore tail art depicting the Peanuts cartoon character, Lucy, appearing to be very pregnant, above the words "Charlie's Problem". This aircraft is currently on display at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, Virginia.

    Because of the high demand for Century wings products, we ask that you send in your order right away. We expect this release to sell out way before the shipment arrives in port. Century Wings is the Top of the line Airplane Diecast Company. If you haven't tried Century Wings yet, what better way to try the line than bringing in the SR-71 Blackbird!!!
