"SR-71 Weekend 2019" on Saturday and Sunday, April 6-7, 2019 will feature panel discussions at 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday. The assembled former crewmembers will discuss their experiences with the SR-71 and answer questions from the audience during these approximately 90-minute panel sessions. Also both days, a “cockpit discussion” will be led by SR-71 pilot Maj. Jerry Glasser (USAF retired) starting at 1 p.m. This discussion will take place adjacent to the museum’s SR-71, 61-7975, which is housed in the main hangar and considered the best-preserved Blackbird in the West today.
The activities listed above will take place during the museum’s regular public hours (9 a.m.-5 p.m.) and are included with regular museum admission: $10 adults, $5 ages 5-11, free for ages 4 and under. Current-duty military and reserve personnel are free with military ID.
Saturday night, a special SR-71 Reunion Banquet will be held beginning at 7 p.m. under the wings of the museum’s SR-71 Blackbird. The banquet will feature the opportunity to sit with a former SR-71 crewmember while enjoying a delicious meal.
