Friday Photo

I'm loving DCist's Photo of the Day today, a great shot of the SR-71 at the Air and Space Museum's Udvar-Hazy Center. Great lighting, great use of depth of field. Well done to photographer Kenneth Paige.  The SR-71 is one of those artifacts that remind me how absolutely sexy a nice piece of engineering can be.  What a beautiful piece of work by the folks at Lockheed.


  1. I worked at Wright Patterson Air Force Base when one of the very last SR-71's flew in to be put in the US Air Force Museum. It was very cool to get to see that. It did several fly-by's before landing and I got to walk up pretty close to it after it landed.

  2. This is me being very, very jealous.
