The Lockheed SR-71 "Blackbird" is a long-range, Mach 3+ strategic reconnaissance aircraft that was operated by the United States Air Force.[2] It was developed as a black project from the Lockheed A-12 reconnaissance aircraft in the 1960s by Lockheed and its Skunk Works division. American aerospace engineer Clarence "Kelly" Johnson was responsible for many of the design's innovative concepts. During aerial reconnaissance missions, the SR-71 operated at high speeds and altitudes to allow it to outrace threats. If a surface-to-air missile launch were detected, the standard evasive action was simply to accelerate and outfly the missile.[3] The shape of the SR-71 was based on the A-12 which was one of the first aircraft to be designed with a reduced radar cross-section.

    You see at the top there is a fuel hatch open exposing a flat serface facing forward the drag on that flat part would rip the airplane apart starting there @AppyGhoul

    @Megaplanesinc it's an IPad Mini. It used to be able to run 800+ parts, but now that I've had it for so long, I've used up almost all of it's memory, and it can barely run 300 parts anymore.

    Y fuel area at top no close. At 2k mph it would make the plane turn into dust due to drag @BoganBoganTheMan
