1987 an event that has been secreted ever since from the american side said today without the Swedish rescue operation the cold war might not have ended 29-June-1987 , the cold war is far from over. An American spy plane takes it’s regular top secret route around the Baltic sea to spy on the Soviet. it’s not any kind of plane, an SR-71 Blackbird. At the time the U.S. Air Force biggest pride and unreachable by all. It was and still is the worlds fastest jet driven aircraft. Then the worst thing possibly happened. The right hand engine fails at 20 000 meters altitude. The America plane is now trespassing Swedish airspace at the southern point of Gotland and 2 Viggen fighters are scrambled. We were on regular exercise around Västervik when we where asked to perform an incident emergency check. Identify a plane of high interest as our RADAR controller said. So we heeded south and I assumed it could be an SR-71 Blackbird from the way he said it. This is a so called “high value acid” highly prioritised object and everyone knew it was there but could never reach it. The plane was in obvious need of aid decision is made the Swedish Air Force is to escorted the high value plane out from the Baltic sea.
