The SR-71 Blackbird is a stealth spyplane. It has massive engines that can speed it up to around mach 3. And because it moved so fast, even if you could see it on radar, it would be gone as soon as you saw it. The damn plane flew so fast that it heated up to about 800 degrees farenheit.

I would say it's a good idea. but only because the US military should be smaller.

Think about it, there never was a report of an SR-71 being shot down, was there? Detected? yes.
But with satellites, theres no real need for spyplanes.

Yeah, and the U2 Dragon Lady didnt have a spotless record, though.
And with only one row (whatever) of landing gear made it difficult to land.
But the sr71 got so hot in flight that the people would have to wait a while to get out of the plane.

The u2 was ok. but the Sr-71 was still better.

One thing is coolness other thig is what is pratical and economic and what is not.. I can only imagine the cost of maintenec such a plane must have. Sr-71 was a major advantej for usa in cold war times. it could fly faster than any fighter so it was virtualy indestructible.. but then came missile threat and a plane that fly at such speeds must be hard to evade from missiles, at mach 3 you wont have much manuvering habilities.. and now there are satelites, that can do sr-71's job... Cause sr-71 is just a reconesance craft...

Spell check is a good idea. And the sr-71 pilots wouldnt have to worry about missiles much, because by the time they picked it up on radar, it had already moved out of range.

lol sorry that my first language isn't english...
In what world do you live in? in mine there are some laws... sr71 can go at mach3, a speed that varies acording to the pressure... there are missiles that go beyond that speed.... do you really think he can hit afterburn and fly away? :X

Not sure but surely the new Russian S-300's could take an Sr-71. IIRC Mach 10 and huge range.
