S R 71 Black bird
Excellent plane & pilot
Not to be nit-picky, but that's the D-21 drone mounted up there. I think that was only applied to to the CIA's A-12, or more specifically, the highly modified A-12 Mothership reclassified as the M-21. For that matter, I don't think the USAF paint scheme is accurate. I could be wrong, the CIA used the AF to conduct some of the D-21 testing, and in fact modified a B-52 to carry and launch the D-21 from under-wing.
I only bring it up because I'm a fan of both the 12 & 71, and I completely agree with the assessment of +F. M.V.
+Eric Poe the paint scheme is correct. The white part is supposed to look more metallic but the M-21 was the only one to sport that color.
Ok, thanks +Reo Cruz!
One of the coolest things I've ever seen
Damn beautiful drawing..!
I saw one of these A-12 /D-21 combinations at the Boeing museum when in Seattle in the 90s. I don't know if it's still on display there, but it was the first time I heard about the A-12. At first, I thought I was looking at an SR-71 too, but the plaque on it informed me. Either way, amazing aircraft designed with a slide rule not a computer.
Cool Never saw one of these but we love the Blackbird
What was the D21
+Oliver Mayo D-21 is the ramjet drone mounted above this A-12 (except the A-12 with the drone daughtership is actually a specific variant, the M-21). The mothership is configured with a control suite inside one of the cargo bays, normally reserved for reconnaissance cameras and processing gear.
Not sure, but I think this might be the CIA A12
Sorry folks, next time I'll scroll down a bit more before I put my two cents worth in.

Nice design but where is coal fushion
What is that
What a coal fushion
Its Cold fusion and no it will never work.
Looks like equipment medical.very dangerous.
Is it a drawing
This is how u built real rec
That plane is in area 51
Really, doesn't anyone recognize this plane? It's an SR-71, (With a cool paint job), designed and built at area 51 in the late 50s and early 60s by Kelly Johnson and Skunk works. And to this day is one of the most BAD ASS planes EVER built. This is another example of why Americans these days scare, and dissapoint the hell out of me. That plane's history is common knowledge for A LOT of us, but I'm the first post to share my learned history of it. ON A BIGGER SCALE, WE AMERICANS AREN'T BEING TAUGHT THE HISTORY THAT USED TO BE TAUGHT IN SCHOOL. WE PUT MORE MONEY INTO LAW ENFORCEMENT AND PRISONS THAN EDUCATION. THOSE WHO DON'T REMEMBER HISTORY ARE GOING TO REPEAT IT!!! Hitler was able to get a whole country to "turn in your Jews" and turn their backs on the horrors of millions. NOW ONE OF THE MOST SELFISH MEN OF OUR TIME, (TRUMP), GOT VOTED INTO OFFICE? YOU KNOW, THE SAME GUY WHO WANTS YOU TO TURN IN YOUR MEXICANS AND DEPORT THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE CRIMINALS? The only truth that came out of his mouth is that this election is rigged. I pray that America isn't becoming THE FOURTH RIECH. We have just been shown in real time the level of pure corruption our government has been allowed to sink to. How fucking sad, the only reason to be proud to be an American is by publicly standing up for what we know in our hearts to be morally right. That's pretty easy to figure out, it goes by titles like THE GOLDEN RULE!!!!!!! Let me explain. TREAT OTHERS AS YOU WOULD WANT TO BE TREATED, NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH, TREAT OTHERS AS THEY HAVE TREATED YOU. See the difference? Do you really want to look back in shock after the world says America has to go, and promptly kicks our ass because we really didn't have the heart to defend this country because it had turned to shit as we allowed it to? I feel sad for the millions of lives that were given to defend this country while the rest of us sat back and did nothing as this country sold its soul for something as pathetic as money. If what I just wrote wasn't true, Trump wouldn't be allowed the privilege of being our most trusted public servant, THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
were did you get that
Wow! Is this a real aircraft? Cool! Thank you for the picture.
SR-71, I was at the right place at the right time (early 80's) over seas and saw one taking off. Very impressive J-85 massive ram jet engines. They have been out of commission for a while. Technology made them obsolete, but at altitude no bullet or rocket could ever catch one, they were beyond fast.
Sorry, I ment to say J-58 engine ( I posted J-85 by accident )
SoN km wkk a I p]p]p]ppppp
Huffman, you are a fucking blind idiot!!!
