The SR-71 Blackbird

Blackbird Aircraft Crews

These photos are of the brave men and women who crewed the A-12, SR-71 and YF12 airframes. Click on a photo to see any details. Some photos contain information from the Blackbird crew's record. We don't have all the pilots pictures yet, but we have their names and they will all be added to the end of the list with a generic image. If you know of an image, or have one yourself, send us an email and we'll research it and add it to the gallery.

About the Photos

We have collected these photos from various sites, but primarily from With enhanced white balance and Digital Noise Reduction we have cleaned up some older photos and eliminated the graininess without sacrificing the quality of the photo.
