Keep the Pointy End Forward

comment 1

One of the more interesting pieces of equipment sitting atop the deck of the Intrepid is the awkward, but sleek SR-71. On a recent visit to the ship, my wife said to me, "Now I know what you boys get all worked up about." A brilliant bit of advice from Maj. Walter Watson regarding flying one of these things: "Keep the pointy end forward."
