Really cool reconnaissance plane born in the 60’s about the same time as me 😉 Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird leaked fuel on the ground cause it had to ‘get up to speed’ for the metal pieces to expand and fit together – built for flight, not sitting in the hanger. Artistic license – yes I thought the air inlet needed some cool red glow – that where a lot of the magic happens here with the ultrasonic flight and this is my art, so get over it 😉 Yeh, that blackbird/raven is flying pretty high in the background too 😉

SR-71 Bovine
Cow as Pilot of SR-71 Blackbird

I had been wanting to do something with this and while in Arizona for the Arizona Fine Art Expo (AFAE), I used it for a ‘challenge’ piece I called ‘SR-71 Bovine’ featuring a cow as pilot. So I decided to go ahead and finish out just the plane version to add to my collection. And for all you Air Force Farmers out there, both versions are available 🙂
