The secret engine technology that made the SR-71 the fastest plane ever

On December 17, 1903, the Wright brothers flew the first airplane ever at 6.8 mph (10.9 km/h). Only 61 years and five days later, the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird took off. It’s still the world’s fastest airplane with a speed of 2,193 mph (3,530 km/h.) This fascinating video explains its top secret engine technology.

It’s truly amazing that only 61 years and five days separate this

And it’s even more unbelievable that we haven’t been able to top that 51 years later (it will be exactly 51 years tomorrow—the first flight occurred on December 22, 1963.) Absolutely incredible.

  1. If we had such type of great manuscript of ancient plane technology then why we are not able to make such type of ancient planes (e.g. pushpak viman)..why india is not able to make their own planes or helicopters or aviation machinery????

    I truly belives that our VEDAS and PURAN are fake and can be only used to cheat anyone…

    DRDO doesnot have technology to make a gas turbine, india buys it from foriegn countries like Russia and France.

    1. Please do not make nonsensical comments and do some research.And remember, Truth does not care for personal beliefs.Vedas are not fake; neither are Puranas, today historians and Scientists are truly researching this for the wealth of information available in these.(Your information about DRDO is plainly wrong.)Go through this–
