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).
averaged 2,124 MPH.... FUCKING AVERAGED!!

I wonder what top speed it actually hit?

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.

Lies, the Tasaday Tribe invented the SR71.



When will the white man stop stealing things from people of color?
