    Incredible. MFDs on 60 yr old technology, just one of the incredible feats of this aircraft design and avionics, logistics, support, engineers, etc. Nice to hear a guy from Western PA giving the presentation.

    The best explanatory video on cockpit controls in the SR-71 I've seen to date. A complex cockpit broken down in simple language. Very good.
