    Default Edwards AFB Open House

    Edwards AFB Open House for the first time in 13 years. If anyone goes please, if you can, post some photos or anything else interesting. I would hope they have a video posted.

    Now that they have rolled SR-71 955 out from the museum, I wish I were there. Sadly, it is not to be. I do know a few people who are there. I'll try and get them to post over here.

    Wow no kidding, just checked ! I would have guessed the last Edwards show was pre Covid, not 13 years ago! I went to Santa Maria instead.

    Hello!

    I saw this post and thought i'd upload some of the photos that I had taken at the Edwards Air Force Base airshow!
    They are not great (as they were taken from my phone) but at least it's something to look at!

    UPDATE: I cannot for the life of me figure out how to attach the photos that I have taken on to this post (apologies, this is my first post on AAFO, long time lurker though haha). If anyone would like to see the photos (they are just really of the SR-71 and the Darkstar), please assist me with how to post photos on this forum!

    Thank you!

    I think I figured it out....

    My girlfriend took WAY better photos than I did... I will upload some of those when I receive them from her!

    Excellent pictures!

    Since this place is all about pictures of fast airplanes, I'd say you win today!

    61-7955 isn't eligible for any class at Reno, but if you took all the race speeds of the finishers of this year's Saturday unlimited gold heat and added them all together, you'd approach her cruising speed

    IMO - being a "youngin", my favorite part of this show was the sheer history of being at such a legendary place AND being able to experience multiple sonic booms in person on almost the exact date in history Chuck broke the sound barrier.

    Wayne,

    You are very welcome!

    Are you talking about the Darkstar? It was the aircraft from the new Top Gun Maverick movie!
