Lockheed Martin’s mysterious SR-72 — the fastest plane ever

In 2013, Lockheed Martin announced development of the successor to the SR-71 Blackbird spy plane.

The SR-71 was capable of reaching speeds over three times the speed of sound, and the SR-72 is intended to have even more impressive specs. Following is a transcript of the video.

The SR-72 is the successor to the SR-71 Blackbird spy plane, which was the fastest plane to ever exist.

Built by Lockheed Martin in the 1960s, the SR-71 could reach speeds exceeding Mach 3 (above 2,200 mph). That's over 3 times faster than the speed of sound. The recon jets went out of service in 1998.

Development of the SR-72 was announced in 2013.

It will be headed by "Skunk Works," Lockheed's advanced development program. Lockheed calls the SR-72 a "game changer." The jet will be an unmanned hypersonic aircraft.

Lockheed claims it will reach speeds topping Mach 6 — over 4,500 mph — and they also want the jet to do more than just recon missions, including the ability to strike targets.

Experts say the jet could reach anywhere in the world within an hour.

Rumors of sightings have flooded the internet. Recently, an unmanned aircraft was seen at a Skunk Works facility. Reports say it could have been an early test for the SR-72. Lockheed confirmed plans to fly a research vehicle in the early 2020s.

If all goes well, it may not be long before the fastest plane ever hits the skies.

Top 10 Fastest Airplanes – Fighters 2019 | Supersonic Speed – WORLD RECORD

top 10 fastest airplanes and top 10 fastest fighters
What is the fastest aircraft (fighter) in the world? – You will find the answer in our video!

These fighter develop ultra-fast (supersonic) speed:
1. MiG-25 to 3700 km/h (critical speed) – world record
2. MiG-31 to 3400 km/h
3. Su-57 – 3000 km/h (with the new engine)
4. Eurofighter Typhoon – 2 700 km/h
5. F-15 – 2 700 km/h
6. Su-35 – 2700 km/h
7. MiG-35 – 2600 km / h
8. MiG-29 – 2 500 km/h
9. F-14 – 2 500 km/h
10. Su-27 – 2 500 km/h

MiG-25 is the world's first serial fighter to have reached the speed of 3000 km / h. In 1977, test pilot Alexander Fedotov achieved an absolute world altitude record of 37,650 meters on MiG-25, and other 29 world records have been registered with this aircraft.

Best High Speed Flyovers

For all of the aircraft junkies (such as myself) out there, this one's for you. High speed passes from jets, to bombers, to even WWII warbirds. Including many sub & super-sonic passes as well as passes breaking the sound barrier. Nothing screams "Nationalism" like the sound of the roar of jets or the howl from a warbird. Videos like this will make you want to fly your nation's flag sky high while you kiss your 'ole lady with beer in one hand and flipping off your enemies with the other. Enjoy.

We often tell them that these are actually very reasonable prices, Austria for example calculated an hour price for their Eurofighters of not less than EUR 70,000. Good thing that the non-supersonic jet trainers we also offer are far cheaper. For one because they consume significantly less fuel, but they are also much cheaper to maintain.

Curiosity

USAF to buy unclaimed Russian 747s for Air Force One replacement

Before his inauguration, President Donald Trump raged about how the US Air Force's program to replace its two aging VC-25A aircraft—the heavily modified 747-200 aircraft known as Air Force One when in service—was too expensive. Via Twitter, he declared that the cost of the program was out of control and said, "Cancel order!"

But the Air Force has pressed on with its plans to purchase two newer 747-8 aircraft to replace the existing presidential transports, for good reason: the VC-25As currently in service have been flying since the George H.W. Bush administration. Fortunately, the Air Force has managed to find a way to save on the $386.8 million price tag for each of the two 747-8s needed—with a little help from Russia.

As Defense One's Marcus Weisberger reports, Boeing has two completed 747-8 aircraft that were ordered in 2013 by the Russian airline Transaero, which used to be Russia's second-largest air carrier. But Transaero went bankrupt two years after placing the order and making partial payment for the planes. Russia's Aeroflot acquired Transaero's operations, but the airline decided not to complete the purchase of the two 747s. That left Boeing stuck with two completed, flight-tested aircraft and no buyer. Five months ago, the planes were flown to a storage facility in the Mojave Desert to preserve them until Boeing could find someone to take them off its hands.

The Air Force came to the (somewhat delayed) rescue and is currently negotiating a deal for the aircraft. In a prepared statement, Air Force spokesperson Ann Stefanek told the press, "We're working through the final stages of coordination to purchase two commercial 747-8 aircraft and expect to award a contract soon."
