2005 SR-71 Blackbird Association reunion, Reno, Nv.
Having regained contact with Chief Gornik around 2001, I met he and his wife Dorothy at the 2005 Blackbird Association reunion in Reno, Nevada. Pictured here are TSgt. Carmon Dwain Allen, CMSgt. William M. "Bill" Gornik, and myself, Joe Satterwhite. Sadly, Dwain Allen has since passed. Chief Gornik continues to provide both images and the historical context to further my growing illustrated history of the Blackbird. Thanks, Chief.
