Truly a remarkable aircraft. Along with the speed records that still stand to this day, I found this fact to be impressive also considering we are talking 1960`s technology here..

"The cameras on the Blackbird could take a photograph clear enough to read the license plate on a car on the ground while the plane traveled 80,000 feet above the Earth and at speeds of over 2,000 mph. "

When I was in the Air Force. One landed at Ellsworth in S.D. Watching it take off is breath taking to say the least. We could not get near it and it was taxied into a hanger and guarded heavily.

This fact is quite remarkable:

To The Stars

The SR-71 had extremely accurate navigation systems, too. It was able to maintain its heading within 1,000 feet while at Mach 3 by using a celestial navigation system nicknamed "R2-D2" that tracked a series of 61 stars. The sensor was so powerful that it was capable of detecting the stars in broad daylight while on the ground.

Thanks for the link Crabman!

Odd that you posted that image. The boys and grandsons were out this weekend and the DW lectured us on missing the target !
