1. SR-71 Blackbird 61-7976. 976 was the first SR-71 to be flown on an operational mission; Ed Payne and Jerry O'Malley flew her over Viet Nam on Thursday, March 21, 1968.  22 years later she became the last blackbird to be flown to a museum, when Don Watkins and Bob Fowlkes flew her to the Air Force Museum at Wright-Patterson AFB in Dayton, Ohio, on Wednesday, March 27, 1990.
2. 10 May 1966 First SR-71A #958 delivered to Beale AFB, CA USAF Pilots: Doug Nelson/ Pennington (LSB)(LSW says 4 Apr 1966) On July 27th and 28th, 1976, The United States Air Force celebrated out bicentennial by performing Operation Glowing Speed, which was orchestrated to simply regain absolute speed and altitude records held by the Soviet Mig-25 Foxbat aircraft. SR-71A #17958, on display at the Museum of Aviation near Warner Robins Air Force Base in Georgia, was responsible for record setting flights during Operation Glowing Speed.
3. SR-71A Blackbird, 61-17979 USAF 9th SRW, Night Hawk, 1990. Limited Edition 800 Pieces Worldwide. Aircraft #61-7979 first flew on August 10th, 1967. Over the next 23 years it flew missions with the 9th Strategic Reconnaissance Wing from Beale AFB in California and Kadena AFB in Japan. In 1973 it flew six of the nine non-stop operational missions from the US to the Middle East to monitor the Yom Kippur war. Nearing the end of its career, the aircraft was briefly decorated with stunning “Night Hawk” artwork applied to the vertical stabilizers in chalk.
4. SR-71A Blackbird, 61-17970. This aircraft was lost on 17 June 1970 following a re-fueling collision with a KC-135Q (59-1474) tanker. Lt. Col. Buddy L. Brown and his RSO Maj. Mortimer J. Jarvis both ejected and survived the crash. The KC-135 made it back to Beale AFB, California with a damaged refueling boom and aft fuselage. Super Skater crashed into the desert.

Nationality markings (hereinafter: insignia) on US Air Force planes were used for the first time in 1916, during the suppression of the so-called Pancho Villa's rebellion in Mexico. Interestingly, they only showed a red star - confusingly similar to those that were later used on Soviet machines. However, in the period from May 1917 to February 1918, a white star was used as the insignia of American airplanes in a circular blue field with a red circle in the center. This designation returned in 1919 and was used until 1942. In May this year, the insignia was changed by removing the red circle in the center, due to the possibility of confusion with the Japanese military aircraft markings. During Operation Torch, in November 1942, a yellow dust jacket was applied around the blue field of the white star. However, in the summer of 1943, the white star in the blue field received white ribbons on both sides, and from August 1943 until January 1947 - blue dust jackets were added to the ribbons. In January 1947, the official designation of USAF aircraft was introduced, which is actually valid to this day (2019) - a white star on a blue background, with two ribbons in a blue dust jacket with a single horizontal red stripe on each ribbon. In the 1980s, the low visibility insignia were introduced, i.e. insignia with the graphic layout of the insignia but painted with a uniform white, black or gray paint.
