    Last minute engine run-up and checks are performed on Habu 972 at Det 1, Kadena Airbase in Okinawa, Japan, prior to an operational reconnaissance sortie over the USSR’s naval port at Vladivostok. For over 21 years, Lockheed’s famed SR-71 Blackbird flew highly-classified missions all over the globe, gaining fame as the world’s fastest and highest flying aircraft.

    The painting Outrun the Thunder was completed in 2003, and was featured during the year’s annual reunion of SR-71 HABU veterans. A lithograph edition of the painting was produced by Liberty Studios, and has seen distribution throughout the US, England and elsewhere. The painting was chosen and displayed as part of a 9-month USAF history exhibition at Wright Patterson AFB during ’03-’04. It has also appeared illustrating various publications, including Air Force magazine. It has never been solicited for sale prior to now.

    Signatures on Back of Canvas: 71 Total Signatures The original has been signed on the back of the canvas (in black) by many of the SR-71 pilots and RSOs who flew the Blackbird during its operational history. There are currently 70 HABU crew signatures, representing approximately 2/3 of all the crews who flew military ops during the Blackbird’s career. In addition to these, it is also signed by Robert Gilliland, the first man ever to fly the SR-71 on it maiden test-flight in December, 1964. (note: his inscription reads, “Robert J. Gilliand – Lockheed Test Pilot – First Flight SR-71 – 22 December 1964”.
