Time Line of the SR-71

 This chronological history of the SR-71 was compiled from various sources, including my first hand witness, and was created to become a testament to an aircraft which by all accounts is the standard by which others should be measured.  Any chronological history of the SR-71 must include leading events which resulted in the creation the aircraft.  This Time Line will therefore contain events which might not, at first read, seem to be related to the SR-71.  To fully appreciate the story of the SR-71 it is important to understand a little of the world into which this aircraft was born. 

  This time line was started in the hope that it would become a place where others who know of additional events will freely add their information.  Additionally, some items may need some corrections.


Initial Compilation:  2002
