The fastest and highest flying jet ever created, and my favourite aircraft, the Blackbird at the March Field Air Museum - This plane set the world speed record in July of 1976 @ MPH and has held it since. This plane also set the altitude record of feet.
The Blackbird is an advanced, long-range, Mach 3 strategic reconnaissance aircraft built by Lockheed Martin. Now the company is developing the successor to Blackbird. Developing the Blackbird of Successor to Blackbird.
I can tell you about the Blackbird's titanium frame, its Pratt&Whitney engines, or its genesis. What really matters is the thrill of flying it in an extremely dangerous mission, as remembered by this pilot.
aThe Blackbird, The Fastest Plane On Earth. The Blackbird aircraft was built by Lockheed Martin and took its first flight in It was retired by NASA in Wow! Honor to the pilots of these magnificent war planes.
