January 5, 1933-January 29, 2015
Lt. Col. Brian McCallum (Ret.) served 23 years in the Air Force, seeing action in both the Korean and Vietnam wars. He was one of the first pilots to fly the SR-71 Blackbird, a long-range reconnaissance plane that still holds the record as the world's fastest and highest-flying manned aircraft. Lt. Col. McCallum flew the Blackbird for the last 8 1/2 years of his military career. Prior to the SR-71, Brian flew various Air Force aircraft, including the F-86F fighter, the KC-135 aerial refueling tanker, and the EC-135 aerial command center.
Brian gave his life to the Lord in November 1964 while watching a Billy Graham television crusade. Five years later he was baptized in the Holy Spirit during a charismatic revival at his military base in California.
