SR-71: A Plane I’d Love To See Fly

I have always considered myself a good Air Force Brat as my dad served in the Air Force for over 20 years. While I only was at three bases, Castle Air Force Base in California; Ramstein Air Force Base, Germany; and Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri, I got to see a lot of great planes.  I love the B-2 Stealth Bomber, A-10 Thunderbolt; T-38 that are stationed at Whiteman. I have enjoyed going to air shows to see everything from the old biplanes to the Mustangs to the F-4 Phantom to the F-16s.  However, I was a watching a movie Turbulent Skies and got to thinking that I never have seen an SR-71 fly in person.

2012 Severe Weather Recap Shows Calm Skies for Pettis County

The Sedalia-Pettis County Emergency Management Agency recently released their severe weather review for 2012.  Although violent and damaging storms did occur, 2012 was a very calm year for Pettis County, with only one Severe Thunderstorm Warning, no more than five Severe Thunderstorm Watches.  Perhaps most notable is the fact that Pettis County was never placed under a Tornado Watch in 2012.
