    Lockheed SR-71 "Blackbird" fittingly in black-and-white

    This Lockheed SR-71 "Blackbird" reconnaissance stealth airplane is at its final resting place in the Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum Stephen F. Udvar-Hazy Center in a northern Virginia suburb of Washington, D.C. It flew there from Los Angeles, California in 1 hour 4 minutes, a trip that takes about 6 hours by commercial passenger flight. The airplane set the record in 1976 that remains unbroken today for being the fastest air-breathing manned aircraft.

    Captured in 2011 and converted to black-and-white a few days ago. C&C encouraged, though I have no questions to ask.

    Good tonal range in these Mike. The 2nd one looks particularly menacing

    The second one almost looks like a negative. Very interesting.

    Mike,

    For me, lens flares on the left of image one and LX hot spots to the right are a tad over powering and detract from the main subject.

    Thanks for the comments, Robbie, but I'm a bit confused. I don't see any lens flare. Are you perhaps referring to the starbursts? What does "LX" mean?
