Lockheed Martin SR-71 Blackbird

The Lockheed Martin SR-71 Blackbird is the most spetacular performer ever to leave the ground under it's own power and spread wings. Thirty years after entering servic, the Blackbird is aloft again after a premature retirement. It is still the world's fastest and highest flying operational aircraft. It's huge engines operate as ordinary jets at low speeds and switch to ram jets at speeds of 2000+.
