 I was lucky enough to meet Bill Weaver at NASA when he was flying Orbital Sciences L1011 mothership. I told him I how I always tell this story to the visitors at the Blackbird Airpark and he just gave me an "ah shucks" kind of look like he got blown out of an SR-71 at Mach 3+ everyday of the week.

Does anyone know where this SR-71 crashed 25 Jan 1966?
This story has come to light again because it is on the Smithsonian channel

Found this in the Scramle book.

1/25/66 SR-71A #61-17952 30 miles west of Roy, New Mexico. Broke up mid-air, crew eject, one was killed.

The X-Hunters have this one on their web site.
