Visit the Pima Air Museum in Tucson, AZ - you can walk under and touch a real Blackbird. Sanitized, of course, but still the real thing.

SR-71 is one of my all time favorites too. Read a story one where they tried mounting guns to it but it ended up flying into it's own bullets. The rounds slowed down but the plane didn't.

They also say it leaks like a sieve until it gets enough wind resistance to heat the body and seal the plane.

they refuel right after lift off.. hook up with a c130 or other refuling aircraft. A difficult task for a machine to go slow when its meant to FLY around the world at a moments notice and in its hayday. They say nothing replaced that was on the books but its a black project , its not counted against the national debt..jmho, concealed 27

Got to walk up to a live in service SR-71 at Hill AFB where one landed for repairs (years ago). They covered up the Top Secret stuff and let us look at the rest. One amazing bird
