Sled Driver - Blackbird Pilot Brian Shul

Brian Shul and the SR-71 Blackbird

Time: Saturday, August 4, 2012 - 1:30pm - 2:30pm

Event Type: Public Program

Location: William M. Allen Theater

Photographer, author, pilot and showman Brian Shul shares stories and photos from his experience as a "sled driver"--an SR-71 Blackbird pilot.

The presentation is based upon his book, "Sled Driver," which features Shul's dazzling photography and insightful prose to illustrate what it is like to fly the world's fastest, highest-flying jet, the SR-71 Blackbird. Shul's program includes riveting accounts of Mach 3 runs over hostile territory and star gazing at 80,000 feet.

For over 20 years Shul has appeared at the Museum during Blue Angels week. Shul has also traveled the air show circuit with the Blue Angels for his book "Blue Angels: A Portrait of Gold."

This program is included with Museum admission and is Free for members of the Museum of Flight.
