The Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird is my husband’s favourite plane so after the success of the Concorde and Spitfire prints, he asked me if I would do this one next. We were lucky enough to hear Colonel Richard Graham talk at Imperial War Museum Duxford, stood beneath the SR-71 in their collection. We even queued up after to get him to sign our copy of his book about his experiences flying the Blackbird.

Finally retired in 1999, since 1976, the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird has held the world record for the fastest ‘air-breathing manned aircraft’ with a recorded speed of 1,905.81 knots (2,193.2 mph; 3,529.6 km/h). That works out to a staggering 36.55 miles/58.83 km per minute.

Delivery times and backorders

I print to order everything except A1 posters, and can usually dispatch within 48 hours of an order being placed. I have to order A1 posters on demand from an external printer, so these take a little longer.

DELAY IN DISPATCHING ORDERS: Please note that I will only being visiting the Post Office once a week while the UK is in lockdown so please only order if you are flexible on timescales. Thank you so much for your understanding and support. Stay safe, with love, Georgina.
