Description

The SR-71 was engineered by Lockheed and the Skunk Works division to be a long-range reconnaissance jet capable of flying at an altitude of 85,000 feet. Because of it's tremendous speed (Mach 3.2+ or 2,464 MPH), not a single SR-71 was shot down during service. This high speed also required that the aircraft be constructed with a special titanium alloy.

 

This particular aircraft crashed on private property in Texas and the titanium was purchased from a private collector.

This is so cool

I haven't given it as a gift yet, but my child who is also an aviation appreciator thinks that this is the coolest thing. There's something very elegant about it, as well. My husband will *geek out* and I know exactly where on the desk he'll put it, and that brings me joy. I'm excited. It's just cool.
Thank you!
