'ADP' Stamp 24x18-inch Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird Red 'NO STEP' Stencil Titanium Relic Display

Special extra-large SR-71 Blackbird titanium relic display, handmade by Ron Cole.

This display incorporates a substantial 6x5-inch section of exterior skin that retains much of its original radar-absorbing black coating (it is safe, and non-toxic), and very rare and unique bright red "NO STEP" stripe and stenciling. Just as rare, is the original Advanced Development Project (ADP) Skunkworks inspection stamp! This piece consists of multiple layers of titanium, titanium screws; all kinds of interesting construction.  

SR-71 'Super Skater' (serial number 17970). This aircraft was lost on 17 June 1970 following a re-fueling collision with a KC-135Q (59-1474) tanker. Lt. Col. Buddy L. Brown and his RSO Maj. Mortimer J. Jarvis both ejected and survived the crash. The KC-135 made it back to Beale AFB, California with a damaged refueling boom and aft fuselage. Super Skater crashed into the desert. These pieces were recovered from the crash site in June 2013 by Zane Harwell, from whom these parts were directly obtained. The vast majority of the aircraft was removed from the site by the government in 1970, but these few pieces of wreckage remained. 

This display is built into a custom-made black-finished open hardwood frame, ready to hang. 

Signed and numbered 1 of 1 - a true one of a kind!
