Colonels Rich Graham and Don Emmons flew the Blackbird together for 5 1/2 years. Colonel Graham as pilot and Colonel Emmons as Reconnaissance Systems Officer (RSO). Colonel Graham was an F-4 Wild Weasel pilot before joining the SR-71 program and Colonel Emmons was the lead bombardier on the first B-52 Linebacker mission and also dropped the last bombs from a B-52 in Vietnam.
