Lockheed Martin, SR-71 Blackbird....
SR-71 Blackbird. It is difficult to describe all the innovations on the SR-71. But for example the landing wheels were made of a latex aluminium alloy to stop them melting and kept at 415psi.
The Fastest Plane on Earth [25 pics] I saw one w/ my own eyes when I was in the military & I will never forget it- more than awesome.
I can tell you about the Blackbird's titanium frame, its Pratt&Whitney engines, or its genesis. But that's not important. What really matters is the thrill of flying it in an extremely dangerous mission, as remembered by this pilot.—JD

SR-71 is ultimately my favorite jet! It's sleek and fast and can soar all the way to just below the atmosphere simply amazing
