Five Countries who Fired Missiles at SR 71 Blackbird (Video)
This aircraft was utilized by the United States Air Force from the year 1964 through to 1998, which is a lot of years of service. There were 32 of these produced in total. Twelve of these were lost in accidents; however, none were lost due to enemy action. However this does not mean the enemy did not try to destroy these aircraft; during the course of many missions (all reconnaissance) within the Vietnam War, 800 SAMs (approx) were fired upon SR-71s, but none managed to strike a hit. But North Vietnam wasn’t the only country to try and shoot down a blackbird, there were four other countries who tried, too. Check out the video to find out more!
