Description

AF1-0088A Lockheed SR-71A Blackbird, Signature Edition "61-7975," Maj Terry Pappas & Capt. John Manzi, Persian Gulf, 1987. truly unique: an Air Force 1 replica of the legendary SR-71 Blackbird used during a daring 1987 USAF mission, signed by one of the heroic aviators who flew it. During the Iraq-Iran War, Major Terry Pappas and Captain John Manzi launched their SR-71A from Kadena Air Base in Okinawa, Japan, with a distant target in the Persian Gulf. Facing perhaps the most ominous weather of their flying careers, they were required to stay in close formation with the refueling tanker aircraft ???? often within 12 feet ???? for nearly a third of their harrowing journey. Ultimately, the Blackbird required five air refuelings, and the non-stop flight took over 11 hours, one of the most grueling and challenging missions ever attempted by the Air Force pilots. An homage to Pappas and Manzi????s endurance and bravery, this 1/72 scale, die cast model ???? available in either the signature (signed by Maj. Pappas) or non-signature editions ???? features a realistic sleek design with detailed afterburning turbojets, a glazed canopy, optional-position landing gear, and a mid-flight display stand.
