Quoting Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum | Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird:

No reconnaissance aircraft in history has operated globally in more hostile airspace or with such complete impunity than the SR-71, the world’s fastest jet-propelled aircraft. The Blackbird’s performance and operational achievements placed it at the pinnacle of aviation technologies developments in the course of the Cold War.

This Blackbird accrued about 2,800 hours of flight time during 24 years of active service with the U.S. Air Force. On its final flight, March 6, 1990, Lt. Col. Ed Yielding and Lt. Col. Joseph Vida set a speed record by flying from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C., in 1 hour, 4 minutes, and 20 seconds, averaging three,418 kilometers (two,124 miles) per hour. At the flight’s conclusion, they landed at Washington-Dulles International Airport and turned the airplane more than to the Smithsonian.

Transferred from the United States Air Force.

Quoting Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum | Boeing P-26A Peashooter :

The Boeing P-26A of the mid-to-late 1930s introduced the concept of the higher-overall performance, all-metal monoplane fighter design, which would become standard during World War II. A radical departure from wood-and-fabric biplanes, the Peashooter nonetheless retained an open cockpit, fixed landing gear, and external wing bracing.

Most P-26As stationed overseas have been sooner or later sold to the Philippines or assigned to the Panama Canal Division Air Force, a branch of the U.S. Army Air Corps. Several went to China and 1 to Spain. This one was primarily based at Selfridge Field in Michigan and Fairfield Air Depot in Ohio among its acceptance by the U.S. Army Air Corps in 1934 and its transfer to the Canal Zone in 1938. It was offered to Guatemala in 1942 and flew in the Guatemalan air force until 1954. Guatemala donated it to the Smithsonian in 1957.

Quoting Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum | Vought F4U-1D Corsair :

By V-J Day, September two, 1945, Corsair pilots had amassed an 11:1 kill ratio against enemy aircraft. The aircraft’s distinctive inverted gull-wing style allowed ground clearance for the enormous, three-bladed Hamilton Normal Hydromatic propeller, which spanned more than four meters (13 feet). The Pratt and Whitney R-2800 radial engine and Hydromatic propeller was the biggest and one of the most strong engine-propeller combinations ever flown on a fighter aircraft.

Charles Lindbergh flew bombing missions in a Corsair with Marine Air Group 31 against Japanese strongholds in the Pacific in 1944. This airplane is painted in the colors and markings of the Corsair Sun Setter, a Marine close-assistance fighter assigned to the USS Essex in July 1944.

A Swordfish aircraft with the Royal Navy Historic Flight.

The Swordfish evolved from the prototype Fairey TSR.II (Torpedo Spotter Reconnaissance), made by Marcel Lobelle and HE Chaplin of the Fairey Aviation Organization Ltd., initial flew in 1934 and entered service with No.825 Squadron in 1936. In all, 2391 aircraft have been constructed, the first 692 machines by Fairey Aviation and the remainder below licence by Blackburn Aircraft Company at their works at Sherburn-in-Elmet and Brough, Yorkshire. In service the Blackburn-built aircraft became unofficially recognized as &quotBlackfish&quot. Probably the most outstanding aspect of this very distinguished aircraft was its longevity.

Even though by all regular requirements it was already obsolete at the outbreak of WW2, it confounded every person by remaining in operational service throughout the complete of the war, and thereby gained the distinction of becoming the last British bi-plane to see active service. Indeed, it outlasted its intended replacement, the Albacore, which disappeared from front-line service in 1943.

The Royal Navy Historic Flight are the guardians of the Fleet Air Arm’s proud history, upholding the memory of naval aviators by keeping vintage aircraft airborne.
