Crash of SR-71 Blackbird in 1966

During the fourth test of an experimental drone aircraft in July 1966, the drone collided with the SR-71 shortly after separation. The aircraft broke up, and both crew members bailed out. However, one drowned after parachuting into the ocean off the coast of California. For further information on the history of the SR-71, visit Habu.org.
