Lockheed Martin SR-72
The Lockheed Martin SR-72, colloquially referred to as “Son of Blackbird”, is an American hypersonic UAV concept intended for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance proposed privately in 2013 by Lockheed Martin as a successor to the retired Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird.
22 November 1989: Air Force SR-71 program officially terminated. 21 January 1990: Last SR-71 (#61-7962) left Kadena AB. 26 January 1990: SR-71 is decommissioned at Beale AFB, CA. 6 March 1990: Last SR-71 flight under SENIOR CROWN program, setting 4 world records.

Jets cannot fly into space. Jets are ‘air breathers’ and require air and oxygen to work. Without air, there is no ‘lift’ and the engines will shut down if the air is too thin. It would need reaction motors and a rocket motor.
The slowest jet aircraft is the Polish-made PZL M-15 “Belphegor”, a single-engined crop-dusting plane that made its first flight on 20 May 1973. The Belphegor was a biplane weighed down with two huge pesticide tanks that had a top speed of just 200 km/h (120 mph).
That’s 36.55 miles per minute or 3,216.4 feet per second. That’s faster than a bullet shot from the classic M1 Garand rifle of World War II fame. When a bullet left the M1’s muzzle, it was going 2,800 feet per second. … The museum’s SR-71 serial number 61-7958 during one of the world speed record flights.
4603 miles per hour
Capable of traveling at a staggering top speed of Mach 6 or 4603 miles per hour, the SR-72 is roughly twice as fast as the original Blackbird. The new aircraft can also reportedly take off much faster than its notoriously slow-to-start predecessor, potentially a major operational boon in rapid-response scenarios.Nov 9, 2021
The fastest fighter jet in the world today is the MiG-25 Foxbat, with a top speed of 2,190mph, half the speed of the X-15. But how do those jets compare with the other fastest fighters ever created, as well as military aircraft still in service today?
NASA’s scramjet hurtles to earth at Mach 7. An experimental aircraft smashed the speed record for a jet plane on Saturday, flying at seven times the speed of sound. NASA’s X-43A craft flew under its own power for ten seconds, reaching speeds of more than two kilometres per second.
Yes it is possible to buy old military aircraft; they are frequently listed in the pages of aircraft sales periodicals like Controller, Trade-A-Plane, Barnstormers, etc. Popular piston engine military aircraft include the P-51 Mustang, AT-6 Harvard and T-28 Trojan.
Mach 6 or variation, may refer to: Mach number representing 6-times the speed of sound. Hypersonic speed of 6-times the speed of sound.
The L-100-30 is the civilian version of the C-130 Hercules transport plane. The CIA are thought to operate a number of these aircraft for clandestine operations.
Twelve SR-71s were lost and one pilot died in accidents during the aircraft’s service career. Eleven of these accidents happened between 1966 and 1972.
