Aviation Snapshot - Mid-air Refueling of the SR-71 Blackbird

The SR-71 Blackbird participated in many air shows and displays around the world. Two of the most prestigious were the Farnborough and Paris air shows. This shot taken from the tanker boom position shows the SR-71B trainer participating in the annual Oshkosh Experimental Aircraft Association fly-in. It was a great crowd-pleaser!
