We had to share this short video about the SR-71 Blackbird. Enjoy!

The SR-71 reconnaissance aircraft flew missions around the globe at speeds above Mach 3 and altitudes of 85,000 feet or more. Although its many contributions to national security will never be fully revealed to the public, the Skunk Works® marvel holds many world aviation records for its speed and altitude.

In this interview with former SR-71 pilot Col. Buzz Carpenter, you’ll hear a first-hand account of the aircraft’s power and majesty.
