SR-71 Blackbird - one kickass jet

Here is a processed image from my trip to the March Airfield Museum in Moreno Valley, CA.  This is one kick ass jet!  It was one of the fastest manned jets ever flown which reached speeds of around Mach 3.5 (3.5x’s the speed of sound!) and flew at altitudes of 80,000 ft!  Amazingly, it was designed in the early 1960’s, first flown in 1964, and flew until 1998.  Makes you wonder what is being designed and flown now that we don’t know about…
