The fastest supersonic spy plane: SR-71 Blackbird Postcard
The SR-71 Blackbird is one of the fastest airplanes to ever grace our skies. Apart from some experimental planes, it is the fastest aircraft ever made. To this day very little is known about this secretive reconnaissance plane, apart from the fact that it is mainly built of titanium. It was a very successful spy plane packed with stealth technology, ideal for spying on the Russians during the Cold War. This jet creates more thrust than just about any other airplane, including any jet fighter you can think of. It had serious speed - it could shoot past Mach 3. Radar couldn't detect the Blackbird, which made it a true stealth plane. It was ahead if its time and a true cap in the feather of Lockheed Martin who designed and made it. Any pilot who flew this legendary craft regards it as the apex of his career.
This gift celebrates the enigmatic SR-71 Blackbird and is an ideal gift for anyone interested in aviation / avionics.
