Not to shortchange the efforts, or the content, of our last two "Reaching High" interviews, but it's time to get 'em out on the street.
First up is the interview conducted with Brian Shul, one of only 93 men to ever fly the SR-71. Not only was Brian a fighter pilot in Vietnam, but he survived a terrible fire to fully return to flight status, eventually being selected for the SR-71 program. It's not a long interview, but it's packed full of information I've never heard anywhere else.
The other interview was with Lockheed Martin's Bret Luedke, the chief test pilot during the development of the F-22 Raptor fighter. Bret's interview was very refreshing in it's candor, it's lack of technical jargon, and it's clarity. Bret also does a masterful job explaining the hurdles encountered in developing one of the most advanced machines on the planet. It was a most enjoyable interview, and I think you'll enjoy it as well...
This completes our interviews for the time being. But it's given me a definite taste for doing 'em, so don't be surprised if sometime soon there are more.
