How many SR-71's are still in service? The summer of 2000, I was working on a telecom tower near Agusta, GA. I lwas actually on top of the tower,
approx. 200 feet, when I looked over my shoulder and lo and behold, a SR- 71 was streaking toward me (was about a mile or so out), the tower was
directly under it's flight path, even though I have no idea why this bird was flying so fast and low...it's altitude was less than 750 feet, probaly
along 500 feet- the sight of a SR-71 streaking toward you is incredible and one I will never forget, the sound of the engines were very deep.
I actually had time to salute as he went by and over me- it was awesome...
