I am always looking for the number 71 or making the number 71 in my food and with things I have:

Remember back to the first time I went to LA to race I found the best number 71……..The SR71

When my family went to the March Field Museum and we saw the LOCKHEED SR-71 BLACKBIRD.  The 71 Blackbird served with the U.S. Air Force from 1964 to 1998 and it had held the world record for the fastest air-breathing manned aircraft.

The SR-71 was a long range, advanced strategic reconnaissance aircraft.  The Blackbird flew many missions and was never shot down or hit by enemy fire.  In flight the SR-71 generated heat of over 1,000 degrees and up to 200 degrees in the cockpit.  The crew had to ware a special space suite to travel.  Throughout the 24 year career the SR-71 remained the world’s fastest and highest flying aircraft setting two world records:  Speed 2,193 mph and altitude over 85,000 feet.

Once it flew from London to Los Angeles (5,645 miles) in 3 hours and 47 minutes.

The SR71 and I are both really fast and are really cool…..right!
