averaged 2,124 MPH.... FUCKING AVERAGED!!During that flight, pilot Lt. Cols. Ed Yielding and RSO (Reconnaissance Systems Operator) Joseph Vida set a speed record flying from LA to DC (2299.7 statute miles) in 1 hour, 4 minutes, and 20 seconds, averaging 3,418 km/h (2,124 MPH).
According to the official flight manual, which was declassified a while back and posted online, the maximum speed of the SR-71 was Mach 3.3 (2534 MPH). But, if it AVERAGED 2124 MPH, it had to have topped 3000 MPH at some point, right?As I understand, the top speed is still classified.
Lies, the Tasaday Tribe invented the SR71.One of the best things the US has ever made and still unequalled!
What is amazing is that "worthless" White men made this ..... the shock, the horror.
I vote for a day off to celebrate White Engineering Accomplishments, "SR71 Blackbird" day.
