I thought it was Lockheed skunk works.
I have the
engineering development book about that plane ,arcangel, (sp?) etc . It was ,
er, a little fussy ---in going off even 1 degree , off level flight at speed !
probably can drive my car!
McDonnel-Douglas skunkworks! 100 guys, the best ----- I used their motto in my
engineering (x ray co) : Lighten it; simplicate it; lighten it
2200 mph and tipping the nose up or down. Not a pretty thought!
that was pure BS!!
Right. That was claimed by one pilot to have been closer to
2700 mph in the interest of shaking a missile off his tail, and was not

Scooped by Wikipedia! The official SR-71 record was set
in 1976 at 2193 mph, or 36.55 miles a minute, or 1.64 seconds per mile.
So - the SR-71 was a tad quicker than a 300

I have had the
pleasure of knowing 2 "space" travelers in my lifetime. First, Joe
Walker, who was an X-15 test pilot who unfortunately died when his chase
plane collided with the XB-70 Valkyrie delta wing bomber over the Antelope
Valley in 1967.
Secondly, I first
met Tony Bevacqua at a 300 Meet in Phoenix many years ago. We shared a
room for the Meet and I cannot think of a better experience I had than
chatting with him about his exploits in U-2's and SR-71's. Hopefully,
for their enjoyment, Tony will someday give the Meet attendees an overview
of his exciting career. He never would tell me what the top speed is
of the SR-71!!
Thanks for being a good friend.
