Record Setting Pilot Visits the Belle Hearth

IMG_0769This past weekend we had the honor to host a guest who in 1974 was the navigator on a record setting flight from New York to London.  Mr. Noel Widdifield and his pilot Major James Sullivan flew a SR-71 Blackbird jet between the two cities in 1 hour and 54 minutes, exceeding at times 2,000 miles per hour.

Thanks to Mr. Widdifield and Major Sullivan for their bravery in undertaking this mission.
