One of my first photo sessions in 2008. For calendar 2009.
The Blue Flame was the rocket-powered vehicle driven by Gary Gabelich that achieved the world land speed record onBonneville Salt Flats in Utah on October 23, 1970. The mile record stood until 1983, when it was broken by Richard Noble’s Thrust2, but the faster kilometre record stood for 27 years until ThrustSSC went supersonic in 1997.
