My grandfather worked first hand with Kelly Johnson during the development of the Blackbird. He was brought on because he had experience with another supersonic aircraft, the B58. He was an Air Force navigator and had experience in the B36, B47, B58, and SR71. Coolest, and most humble aviator I've ever met.
