61-7967

967 was one of three Blackbirds that were being flown by the USAF after the "fleet" was reactivated in 1995.  These 5 photos, courtesy of John Freedman, were taken at Edwards AFB (DET-2) on August 19, 1998, just prior to the second deactivation of the blackbird's thanks to Clinton's unconstitutional line-item veto.  In early July 1999, the US Air Force transferred ownership of all four flyable SR-71s (including 967) to NASA (click here for a NASA press release).
