Pure genius...greatest spy plane ever built. To bad satellite spying rendered it obsolete!

I heard of at least 1, one star general, who disagrees with the SR-71 having all of its capabilities been replaced by satellites.

There was a time where, if you were within a few yards of this, you'de be on the ground with guns pointed at your head. I actualy got to see one up close and personal just the other day. This was easily my fave cold war plane.

They have an SR-71 on display at the Air and Space Museum annex in Virginia (near Dulles airport). You can walk all around it and over the back on a catwalk. Very impressive.

I've seen that. It's awesome. The same place also has the Space Shuttle Enterprise, which is also awesome.

One of the best aircrafts ever built. Go Skunk Works. Mach 5 points for the work. Great job.
