About the SR-71 Blackbird® Strategic Reconnaissance Aircraft:
First taking to the skies in December of 1964, the SR-71® is perhaps the most iconic plane of the Cold War era. Able to reach speeds of Mach 3 at 85,000 feet, even the most advanced air defense systems of the time had zero chance at incapacitating the SR-71®, and to this day the Blackbird® remains the world’s fastest and highest-flying manned aircraft. Though only a few will ever know the crucial information provided during its more than two decades long service career, the sheer innovation applied to the creation of the SR-71 Blackbird® makes it an unmatched marvel of aircraft technology.
