    Liked the SR-71 BLACKBIRDS a lot better. Longer range and better photo intell. Also used "sniffers" for China Nuke Tests. Used to see them on the scope going up out of U-TAPAO and across China into Guam and back again. Is this still classified.:thumbdown: Once landed at a secure airfield and aircraft commander said "do you see those aircraft over there? No you don't." AF guys get the best Intel duty and get to fly on the outer edge.
