The Lockheed SR-71 "Blackbird"

-Aircraft information:

The first flight of the SR-71 took place on 22 December 1964, at Air Force Plant 42 in Palmdale, California.The SR-71 reached a top speed of Mach 3.4 during flight testing, with pilot Major Brian Shul reporting a speed of Mach 3.5 on an operational sortie while evading a missile over Libya.The first SR-71 to enter service was delivered to the 4200th (later, 9th) Strategic Reconnaissance Wing at Beale Air Force Base, California, in January 1966.

Aircraft controls:

AG-1 Activates/Deactivates the afterburner.
AG-2 Deploys drag chut
AG-8 off/on Landing lights

-Note:

As many of you know, I've uploaded this aircraft before but I removed it due to poor performance and some visual problems. I fixed most of the problems. And yes I know that the red stripe on the wing is not correct, But I do really like the looks of it so I kept it like that. Performance such as speed isn't completely accurate. I still hope you can admire the beauty of the aircraft.

Thanks to everyone who has left a upvote, spotlight or comment. It's heavily appreciated!

And as usually,
Have a great flight!

    My grandfather worked on the hydraulics on the SR-71. Well, he wrote the manual for them at least.

    Pretty good! The pitch could be more powerful though. Also the gear is too far back, and it can’t take off. You could either move the gear 2 or 3 blocks forward so it’s between the CoM and CoL, or you could add some wings and deadweight to the back and move the CoM and CoL backward so they’re over the top of the wheels, if the wheels are in the right place compared to the blueprints.
