Crazy story. The part where he was falling but didn't know where he was at, what his altitude was etc because of the iced over helmet was nuts.


Thanks for posting.

I was stationed at RAF Mildenhall in the mid 80’s. I used to watch the SR-71 take off all the time. It was cool as . Would go vertical as soon as wheels were up then have to refuel. Mach3+ and the + was classified.
