Product Description
 
Inspired by the design of the SR 71 Blackbird Spyplane...

.: Aircraft History :.

From Wikipedia:
The Lockheed SR-71 is an advanced, long range, Mach 3+ strategic reconnaissance aircraft developed from the Lockheed A-12 and YF-12 aircraft as a Black project. The SR-71 was unofficially named the Blackbird.

The SR-71 was the world`s fastest and highest-flying operational manned aircraft throughout its career. On 28 July 1976, an SR-71 broke the world record for its class: an "absolute altitude record" of 85,069 feet (25,929 m). Several aircraft exceeded this altitude in zoom climbs but not in sustained flight. That same day SR-71, serial number 61-7958 set an absolute speed record of 1,905.81 knots (2,193.2 mph; 3,529.6 km/h). For comparison, typical commercial flights fly at an altitude of around 35,000 to 38,000 feet.

The SR-71 also holds the "Speed Over a Recognized Course" record for flying from New York to London, a distance of 5,645 kilometres (3,508 mi), at 1,435.587 miles per hour (2,310.353 km/h), and an elapsed time of 1 hour 54 minutes and 56.4 seconds, set on 1 September 1974. For comparison, the best commercial Concorde flight time was 2 hours 52 minutes, and a typical flight on a 747 averages 6 hours 15 minutes.

In 1996, the Air Force moved to ground the program. The plane was permanently retired in 1998. The Air Force quickly disposed of their SR-71s, leaving NASA with the two last flyable Blackbirds until 1999. All other Blackbirds have been moved to museums except for the two SR-71s and a few D-21 drones retained by the NASA Dryden Research Center.

From fas.org:
Developed for the USAF as reconnaissance aircraft more than 30 years ago, SR-71s are still the world`s fastest and highest-flying production aircraft. The aircraft can fly more than 2200 mph (Mach 3+ or more than three times the speed of sound) and at altitudes of over 85,000 feet.

For its reconnaissance mission, the aircraft was outfitted with an advanced synthetic aperture radar system [ASARS-I], an optical bar camera and a technical objective camera wet film system. All were once part of the aircraft`s original equipment.

The airframes are built almost entirely of titanium and titanium alloys to withstand heat generated by sustained Mach 3 flight. The aircraft`s largely titanium structure is coated with a special radar-absorbing black paint that also helps dissipate the intense frictional heat resulting from flight through the atmosphere at faster than three times the speed of sound. It also gives the plane its distinctive "Blackbird" nickname. Aerodynamic control surfaces consist of all-moving vertical tail surfaces above each engine nacelle, ailerons on the outer wings, and elevators on the trailing edges between the engine exhaust nozzles.

Although most news reports characterize the SR-71 aircraft as `radar evading`, in point of fact, however, the SR-71 was one of the largest radar targets ever detected on the FAA`s long-range radars. The FAA was able to track it at ranges of several hundred miles. The explanation offered was that the radars were detecting the exhaust plume.

.: Product Features :.

Includes two versions of the model (2 .vob files):
  • In Flight: with landing gear down and landing gear doors closed, with Skunk texture
  • Landed: with landing gear down and landing gear doors open, with NASA1 texture

    Each model has sub-groups which you can adjust to suit the needs of your scene:
    -Canopy
    -Rudders
    -Wing flaps
    -Landing gear
    -Pilot and co-pilot/ navigator
    The pivot points on most of the major parts have been set so you can easily rotate them into position.

    Textures:
  • NASA1: with a yellow stripe and black logo on the tail rudders.
  • NASA2: with a white stripe and red logo on the tail rudders.
  • Skunk: a skunk insignia on the tail rudders.
  • Detailed texture maps for the instrumentation panels.
    Texture templates are not included; if you want to make your own textures, use the existing textures as guidelines.
    Materials have been optimized for use in Vue: includes bumpiness, reflection, and additional metallic coloring.

    Note: This model was designed for medium to long-range shots and some textures may look pixellated or blurry when viewed at very close range.
