So *that's* what happened to them!
In my teens and into college I had a LOT of black T-shirts with aircraft on them, done in a distinctive style. The company that made them was Blackbird International. Then, one day, I couldn't find them anymore. And keep in mind this is pre-web, so no Google, etc. I had their mail order catalogs, but the number no longer worked, etc.

Well, I just found them again. Looks like Airborn Flightware bought them out back then. From their website, they still have the 'classic' Blackbird designs I used to wear. Looks like they haven't been static, since they have newer planes like the F-35 now too.

Yeah, they've had tents at every airshow I've been to the last couple of years (where every airshow == Miramar MCAS 2005/2006 and Edwards AFB 2005/2006, but :). It's always several people deep when people are making the march to the gate at the end of the day.

Always gives me a warm fuzzy feeling to see the old (and new!) Blackbird shirts up at a show. One of these days I'll break down and get the MiG-29 shirt.
