No. 44 in the on-going 'Recommended aviation books' series
First published in 1991 " Sled Driver - Flying the World's Fastest Jet " is a 151-page hardcover tome written by former SR-71 pilot Brian Shul. Constantly sought after, only available at very high cost online and especially difficult to find outside the US, often selling for hundreds of £££/$$ on certain auction sites as here....
According to Chandos Pubs, " this is the definitive and ultimate book on what it was actually like to fly this technological marvel. Added to that are numerous beautiful photos, taken by the author. You'll never find a better book on flying the Blackbird. From a model makers viewpoint, this is not the ultimate 'Walk Around' photo album for that, look elsewhere. nevertheless, if you have any interest in X-Planes and the SR-71 in particular, you'd be crazy to miss this book...."
This is the first printing (1991) of the third edition. A limited edition presentation version was released around 2003, and this is also now very hard to find, or only available at very high cost.
