Aviation Accidents: Fall From an SR-71 and the Valkyrie’s mid-air Collision

Two stories of forgotten history surround Aviation Accidents. First, in 1966, an SR-71 “Blackbird” disintegrated at 78,000 feet. The pilot’s first thought was “No one could live through what just happened. Therefore, I must be dead.” Second is about a photo op in June 1966, involving an XB-70A No. 2, an F-4 Phantom, an F-5, a T-38 Talon, and an F-104 Starfighter, which went terribly wrong.
