  The SR-71
by TinKan

At the Pima Air Musuem you will find an SR-71 which at one time was the fastest jut in the American aircraft inventory. This plane was so fast the the American government never released the facts as to how far and how fast it can go.

The SR-71 flies so high that the pilots need to wear suits like the astronauts do.

I am sure that America has something faster now as they do not just retire a plane without a replacment...

Directions: From I-10 eastbound exit to Valencia. From I-10 westbound exit to Wilmot Rd.
