Refueling that thing was always a little harry. We always had to drive the crash trucks to the refueling area,when the 71 was being refueled. JP7 and Hydrazine could be a very nasty. But watching it take-off,especially at night. What a sight. You've seen pictures of jet blast at airports, the 71 made them all look like little pussy's.

I've seen F-8s hit the single stage full afterburner on a carrier fight deck. 1st time I was standing about 30 feet from the starboard wingtip. It sounded like a bomb went off, the shock-wave hit me in and literally knocked me on my ass. F-14s were more forgiving with their 4-stage ABs. Great light shows man.

I flew an SR-71 in Chuck Yeagers AFT on a PC back it the EGA days. Tore the wings off and bought the farm too. That was a fun flight simulator.

lol Anon, I would loved to have seen little 'Harry' re-fuelling that thing, (*facepalm*)
I expect for him it would have been a little 'hairy' the finger
