The Lockheed SR-71 "Blackbird" was an advanced, long-range, Mach 3+ strategic reconnaissance aircraft. It was developed as a black project from the Lockheed A-12 reconnaissance aircraft in the 1960s by Lockheed and its Skunk Works division. Clarence "Kelly" Johnson was responsible for many of the design's innovative concepts. During reconnaissance missions, the SR-71 operated at high speeds and altitudes to allow it to outrace threats. If a surface-to-air missile launch was detected, the standard evasive action was simply to accelerate and outfly the missile.
The SR-71 served with the U.S. Air Force from 1964 to 1998. A total of 32 aircraft were built; 12 were lost in accidents, but none lost to enemy action. The SR-71 has been given several nicknames, including Blackbird and Habu. Since 1976, it has held the world record for the fastest air-breathing manned aircraft, a record previously held by the YF-12.

Quick look inside the amazing Eclipse Aviation EA500 VLJ (Very Light Jet) N562MJ on display at the 2013 Sun ‘n Fun Airshow. The aircraft is labelled as “Total Eclipse” because it has been refurbished and contains cockpit equipment that the standard Eclipse does not have. This 5-seat business jet has a wingspan that is only 1 ft longer than that of a Cessna 172, however, it can fly over four times as fast. You can almost cover the entire engine intake with the palm of your hand, but make no mistake, those PW610 engines pack a lot of power! Thanks for watching.
The awared for "Fastest Business Jet" goes to the Citation X made by Cessna. In 2012, Cessna tested the Citation X and broke speed records of mach .935 to make it The World's Fastest Business Jet. This record surpassed the previous leader in speed for business jets by Gulfstream. The jet is so fast that it takes military fighters to truly test the speed.
