The king is dead... The small Blackbird fleet of the 9th Strategic Recon. Wg. at Beale AFB, CA, was phased out of the USAF at the beginning of 1990. By special arrangement through Lockheed Georgia Public Affairs, the plane going to the Robins AFB museum diverted for some low passes at Dobbins on the way on this unfortunately overcast day (it is star of the collection to this day). Yeah, I know 2 Habu's were reactivated in 1995-8 but they didn't quite become operational before they were cut (again!!).
