    Few aircraft are so legendary and surrounded by secrecy as Lockheed’s awesome SR Blackbird which is known to almost all aircraft enthusiasts and a legend of the Cold War. This imposing aircraft with its sinister black scheme overall was, and still is the world’s only known operational Mach 3 aircraft. The Lockheed 'Blackbird' aircraft family is arguably the most famous in the world. Developed for the USAF as reconnaissance aircraft nearly 40 years ago, SRs remained the world's fastest and highest-flying production aircraft throughout their operational existence/5.

    Believe it or not, the SR Blackbird was first built by Lockheed-Martin in the early s. This is an old bird, but that hasn’t stopped her from crashing multiple records for speed. It was such a fast, high-flying aircraft that even NASA wanted to take the Blackbird on to do testing of their own. The SR has come to represent the very pinnacle of Cold War aircraft design - indeed, it has become an icon. Together with its predecessor, the A, the Blackbird was a giant leap into the technical unknown as the design employed many forms of new technology made necessary by the excesses of speed, altitude and temperature to which the aircraft was subjected.
