wayyy too fast at low altitudes, but will hit mach 3.2+ at 80k ft

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.-Wikipedia

Controls:
Standard flight controls
Ag1: main engine
Ag2: afterburner (pitches nose down violently at first, then raises nose at over 1700mph)

Takeoff:
Ag1, full trim, full throttle until 240ish then pitch up and raise gear. I prefer to light the burners over 1000ft

Landing:
Deactivate afterburners, slow to under 300, main engines throttled to 5%. Manage pitch by using the trim slider

    Cool, also modded engines tend to do that at low altitudes

    @AmazingAidan haha really? Try it out with this plane, you can fly for a long time with the fuel load and the speed. Especially at 90kft
