The March Field Air Museum hosts its SR-71 Weekend on Saturday, April 2 and Sunday, April 3.
The event will bring together 20 former SR-71 Blackbird pilots, reconnaissance systems operators, maintainers and engineers, a press release said. Activities include panel discussions and a cockpit presentation on both days. A dinner, which requires advance tickets, will take place adjacent to the museum’s SR-71.

The futuristic SR-71 Blackbird is the fastest manned aircraft in the world, it says in release. In 1976, an SR-71 set two world records by hitting a speed of 2,193.167 mph and an altitude of 85,068,997 feet, according to the release.
On Saturdays and Sundays there are panel discussions at 11am and 2.30pm. In the sessions of approximately 90 minutes, former crew members have their say. “Cockpit Discussions” are led by retired SR-71 pilot Lt. Col. Jerry Glasser and retired RSO Col. John Manzi.
The activities are included with admission, which is $12 for adults, $10 for veterans, $6 for ages 5-11, and free for ages 4 and under. Active duty military and reserve personnel are free with military identification.
The museum is located along the 215 Freeway on Van Buren Boulevard, near Riverside and next to the March Air Reserve Base.
