Lockheed SR-71A “Blackbird” a long range strategic reconnaissance aircraft. Taken at the National Museum of the United States Air Force in Dayton, OH
Taken with a Olympus C740UZ camera at 6mm, ISO-200, f/2.8, 1/8 shutter speed.
While at O’Hare airport photographing aircraft landing I always like to look up to see if there is anything interesting flying by at high altitude, and I saw a large contrail and took this shot:
I didn’t get the shot while it was overhead due to I was taking a picture of a United Airlines 787 landing at O’Hare.
To get a better idea the size of this aircraft here is a shot of a Dreamlifter at the Rockford Airshow 2012:
