Name Origins

Orgins of name of the SR-71 Blackbird?

In development it was the RS-17, but when LBJ announced it in a speech he got a bit dyslexic and turned things around to SR-71. It kept that name.

SR-71 Blackbird

How fast is mach 3.1 in mph?

It would be an approximate 2,380.8mph.

SR-71 Blackbird

Why did they retire the SR-71 Blackbird?

The SR-71 Blackbird was retired due to the improvement of satellites and the extremely high cost of operating the Blackbird fleet all over the world.

Some can still be seen in aircraft museums and on display at their former bases.

Who invented Blackbird stealth jet?

Lockheed Corporation, now known as the Lockheed Martin.

ANS 2 -The Blackbird wasn't a "stealth jet" -it flew high enough at such speeds that it really didn't matter to be stealth, nothing could catch it.

How do you buy a SR-71 blackbird?

The SR-71 Blackbird is a military aircraft so it is illegal to buy it unless you are the military or government. The price of the Blackbird is also insanely high.

SR-71 Blackbird

Can you buy a flyable SR-71 blackbird?

No. All Blackbirds were built and are owned by the US Air Force. It is not possible for a civilian to buy one.

How many mph is mach 4?


how fast is Mach 2, 3, 5, 10, or any other value besides Mach 1 at a given altitude. So how fast is Mach 4 in miles per hour.

First what is Mach 1 it really comes down to a matter of opinion. It is for this reason that you find such an even divide between sites that assume a value of 761 mph for mach 1 versus those assuming 742 mph. I would argue that 761 mph is the more accurate value since it is derived from the standard atmosphere. The standard atmosphere was developed for engineers who need a universally accepted reference for calculating atmospheric properties. These properties are critical in designing aircraft and predicting how they perform, so it is important for all designers to use the same reference.

So it may be acceptable to calculate that mach 4 is 761mph multiplied by 4 which comes out at 3,044mph.

I hope this helped.

Is the sr-72 blackbird a fighter plane?

No. It is an extremely fast, unarmed, high-altitude reconnaissance airplane. It designator "SR" means "strategic reconnaissance"; fighter airplanes have the designator "F".

And it is sr-71

Paper Production
SR-71 Blackbird

How do you make paper jets?

== Find a piece of paper shaped like a rectangle. A sheet of computer printing paper or school notebook paper is a good size and weight.

2 == Lay the paper on a table with one of the long edges closest to you.

3 == Fold the paper in half lengthwise. When the two edges match up, use your thumbs to make a sharp crease along the fold.

4 == Click to enlarge Take the upper left corner of the top layer of paper and fold it diagonally down toward the first crease you made. When the edges match up, use your thumbs to make a sharp crease along the new fold, which should create a small triangular flap.

5 == Turn the paper over.

6 == Click to enlarge Take the upper right corner of the top layer of paper and fold it diagonally toward you, until the edge lines up with the first crease you made. When the edges match, make a sharp crease along the new fold. (This is a mirror of what you did in step 4.)

7 == Click to enlarge Take the newly formed diagonal edge on the right side of the paper, and fold it straight down toward the first crease you made. When the edges match, make another sharp crease.

8 == Click to enlarge Turn the paper over, and again fold the diagonal edge down toward the first crease you made; make another sharp crease. The paper should now look like a triangle with a 90-degree angle.

9 == Click to enlarge Form the wings by flipping the airplane over and repeating steps 7 and 8.

10 == Hold the paper in one hand along the first crease you made. Let the wings of the plane flare out.

11 == At a point 4 or 5 inches from the nose of the plane, make a 1/2-inch rip in the bottom part of the plane; make another rip 1/2 inch behind it. Fold this tab up.

12 == Click to enlarge Hold the airplane near the tab and toss the plane with an overhand, horizontal forward motion. ANSWER : Keep in mind that the question was " How do you make a paper jet " not a paper airplane. I think you set the wings on fire and throw it !

Does nasa still use the sr-71 blackbird?

No it does not. The last flight of any SR-71 was in 1999 and that was a NASA Blackbird. NASA had used Blackbirds as far back as 1969 in collaboration with the USAF, 2 of those 3 Blackbirds being the YF-12.... sister to the SR-71.

No. The "Blackbird" was a cold war era spy plane. Supposedly, NASA still has two flyable SR-71s at the Dryden Flight Research Center. All the rest are in museums.

How much does the lockheed SR-71 blackbird cost?

The SR-71 Blackbird, originally named the RS-71, but renamed when Lyndon Johnson accidentally rearranged the letters during his 1964 announcement of the existence of the SR-71 (or RS-71?). Anyway, it was designed by Clarence "Kelly" Johnson, at that time vice president of the Skunk Works. The project began in February 1963. The SR-71/RS-71 was built to be a strategic reconnaissance aircraft. Its first flight was on Dec. 22, 1964.

Regarding cost, the SR-71 was not cheap. The cost of running the SR-71 fleet in the 1980s was $260 million annually and It costs $50,000 an hour to fly the SR on a routine basis.

How fast can the sr-71 blackbird fly and at what altitude?

The SR-71's maximum crusing altitude was just shy of 100,000 feet, about 18.9 miles. It's maximum speed exceeded 3.3 times the speed of sound, around 2511 miles per hour. Both of these stats were incrediable for the time it was created.

Was Brian Shul an SR-71 Pilot?

Yes Brian Shul was a SR-71 pilot.

"The SR-71 definitely had two personalities; subsonic and supersonic. The first was quite predictable and stable; the latter always a bit of an adventure."

SR-71 Blackbird

How fast does an sr-71 blackbird go?

They don't go anywhere, they are no longer in use by the Air Force.

What a goofy answer...

An SR 71 Blackbird can travel over Mach 3 (3 times the speed of sound). Mach speed varies a bit by air density but it is roughly 742mph. This means that at Mach 3 the Blackbird is traveling at about 2225mph. This is literally faster than some bullet speeds (30.06 for example), and is faster than the earth's rotation (you could leave New York and fly to Hawaii and get there earlier than you left New York).

SR-71 Blackbird

Has the sr-71 blackbird ever been shot down?

No, not at all. The SR-71 Blackbird has never been shot down during their mission. There over 4,000 SAM's launched at the SR-71 Blackbird but still not even one hit. In reallife no SR-71 Blackbird was ever destroyed. Planning on destroying the SR-71 Blackbird is not really easy. The SR-71 Blackbird can avoid getting shot down really easily. It's not easy to get a lock on to an aircraft because they can deploying move into stealth mode. They can also deploy anti-missile flares. Missiles will not be able to destroy the SR-71 Blackbird.

How long does it take for a SR71 Blackbird to fly from Los Angeles to New York?

In 1990 the SR-71 went from the West Coast to the East Coast in 68 minutes and 17 seconds. That's as close as I could get to Los Angeles to New York.
