Yeah you'd never get close to all the gear. Missile warning, active and passive defenses, improved engines, in flight refueling....

I felt bad for the flight engineer and commo guys though. The FE, in addition to monitoring the aircraft health and all his normal duties, had to deal with 9 or 10 VCRs (keep in mind this was the 90s). The commo guy had to deal with almost 100 phones I think it was, both secure and non-secure.

I was going to add some pictures of a few of the neat parts, but my internet connection would have to improve drastically to be considered pathetic.

They have a SR-71 at the airzoo??? I went there probably 20 years ago, was kinda lame. I think they have a new building now though. Pretty sure I drove past it a month ago or so, maybe a year ago idk lol...

It's not huge but they have the main building and an aux with the restoration shop inside. And yeah, SR-71B. It's beautiful.

That's the only remaining true B model, if it's 956.

They probably have the lasers which are designed to blind/confuse infrared-homing anti-aircraft missiles, at least the earlier versions of them. (Not clear if they work on most modern missiles).
