The U.S. Air Force has awarded Air Medals to four Swedish air force pilots in recognition of their decisive actions during a once-classified encounter with a crippled SR-71 Blackbird during the waning years of the Cold War.
Benjamin Franklin nailed it when he said, "Fatigue is the best pillow." True story, Benny. There's nothing like pushing your body so far past exhaustion that you'd willingly, even longingly, take a nap on a concrete slab.
The SR-71 Blackbird is a legend, a spy plane that has captured imaginations since it first went Mach 3.5 over Soviet spymasters in the 1960s; you may recognize its distinct profile from spy flicks, espionage novels, and in multiple Marvel universe movies as the X Men's chief mode of transport.
