Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird for P3D V4.5, V5.3 & FSX

On sale at: Simmarket.com & Justflight.com


The Lockheed SR-71 is without doubt one of the most advanced aircraft ever built. Built from a need to go higher and faster, in complete secrecy, a total of 31 SR-71s were built including two trainer models. The only manned aircraft ever to cruise above Mach 3, the SR-71 flew over most of the hotspots around the world and was able to bring nearly real-time intelligence on what the enemy was doing. During its career it was said to have outrun hundreds of missiles fired in attempts to down it. After being retired from the USAF, NASA acquired two SR-71s for high speed research programs. In 1995 the SR-71 program rose like a Phoenix and re-entered the USAF inventory operating from Det 2 at Edwards AFB - utilising #971, #967 and the 'B' model #956. But in June 1999, the SR-71 operations from Det 2 were closed down amid a lack of operational deployments, and the SR-71's fate was sealed in October 1999 when NASA's #980 flew its last ever flight.
