1997 Specialized Fly Boy

1997 Specialized Flyboy / SR-71 Blackbird 



Flyboy Restomod with many custom touches, built with my 11 year old son. 

I would like to thank the great men and women of Beale Air Force Base in Northern California for all they do to protect this great nation, and for inviting this civilian and son for an on base photo shoot for this Specialized Flyboy with some of their awesome aircraft. A T-38 Talon, U-2B, and  SR-71A Blackbird & M-21 Blackbird drone.
A very special thanks to John and Shawn at the Beale AFB 9RW Public Affairs Department for making it happen and driving us to the different locations on base

Re: 1997 Specialized Fly Boy

Many thanks highspd . . .  I know of two other Blackbirds on display in Socal. One at the March AFB Museum in Riverside, and another at Exposition Park in Los Angeles. The Blackbird at Beale presented the perfect setting. It's also in far better condition. What a beautiful aircraft, and awesome experience. big_smilebig_smilebig_smile

Also, thank you for the kind words about the Flyboy build. It turned out better than envisioned . . .

Re: 1997 Specialized Fly Boy

Thanks Brix... I haven't taken it for a ride yet, but I am pleased with the end result. I'm really glad you like the photos.  I've got a lot more I'll be making a video with soon. I'll ad the link in the info when I get it finished. Check out the video I made with the left over shots of my polished Fatboy Hemi in the Sequoias or my Dyno VFR Cruiser at March AFB. There's links in the info or details section. I made vids for several of my bikes here on the Museum. It seems like such a waste, to delete them the extra pics, so I started the vids on You Tube wink

Thanks Canno:D I've seen some of your builds, and if his Fatboy turns out anything like your other builds, he gotta love it. big_smilebig_smile
