Hi guys,

Loooooong time lurker, first posting. I am looking for any crash site photos or any information on the SR-71 lost over Thailand in 1970. The SR-71 is said to have crashed near Korat Royal Thai AFB. The pilots were rescued near U Tapao. Amazing the speed a ceiling of these craft, the pilots and plane ended up 240 miles apart.

Thanks for any info,
