No aircraft has ever gone so fast.
Brian Shul was a Sled Driver-one of the lucky few to pilot the Sled-Habu-the Blackbird-the SR-71, a 69,000 kilogram harmony of metal and fuel moving at mind bending speeds.
He details his journey in his book, Sled Driver: Flying The Worlds Fastest Jet. A somewhat rare book, one can find copies for some $300 USD. Filled cover to cover with colorful words and photos of the SR-71s glory, Sled Driver is more than just an ordinary coffee table book-its a 142 page long love letter to the worlds fastest jet.
For your consideration and reading pleasure:
Sled Driver: Piloting the Worlds Fastest Jet, by Brian Shul.
