Dec. 2014/Jan. 2015 “Black­bird Di­aries”:

The pho­to­graph of the SR-71 tire on p. 44 should have been cred­ited to Curt Ma­son/project Habu, not the USAF.

The photo cap­tion at the top of p. 45 should have stated that the KC-135Q/T Stra­totanker was mod­i­fied with spe­cial tanks for the SR-71’S fuel. No KC-135 was pur­pose-built as an A-12/SR-71 re­fu­eler.

Cap­tion, p. 49: The trainer is not in the cen­ter fore­ground of the pho­to­graph. It is all the way in the back, in its own row.

“The In­spec­tor’s Gad­gets,” p. 65, cap­tion at the bot­tom: (1) We re­gret mis­spelling Steve Lind­sey’s name. (2) The sphere is be­ing cap­tured by Win­ston Scott.
