I have never seen any badass planes my entire life. Too bad they won't be passing over Silverton before the firework show at Oregon Garden.

It was 1982 and I was living in Toronto. There was some sort of air show going on although I had paid no attention to it. Unexpectedly that afternoon, I heard a plane in the sky and looked up. It was a black SR71 (I didn't know the name then) climbing almost vertically. I still remember how the chills went up and down my spine.
