I’m glad some one can confirm what my teacher witnessed on his radar. I read on a wiki somewhere that the J-58s could theoretically push the SR-71 to about Mach 5.0.
It is amazing what our technology could do in the 50s and 60s. Just imagine what our most advanced stuff can do today.
that is amazing.
Hell,I feel the g's when grabbing the throttle and going wide open to 115 in a few seconds.
a mile per second is truly impressive.
I can just picture the pilots bwahahahha'ing when someone shoots up a missile, which they are twice as fast as!
Probably nowhere near as well. In the 60s we could go to the moon. Now we rent passenger seats from the Russians to go to get to low earth orbit.
