The SR-71 "Buzzing the tower"

SR-71 Pilot Maury Rosenberg talks about the one time he decided to request a "fly-by" over the Sacramento airport on his way returning to Beale AFB- where he was going to land. The request was eagerly approved by air tower crew, and wanted them to fly "down the ramp" (much closer to the tower and other buildings)

I recorded this at Western Museum of Flight earlier this year.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
