    While surfing at the USAF Museum Site I saw this aircraft.

    When I first saw it I thought it was the latest unmanned aircraft. It looks very modern. It was designed in the 60's and ready for use in 1971!

    If You look at a Sr-71 Blackbird, also 1960's tech it looks at modern as anything in service today.

    The SR-71 still holds the speed record. I wonder if the Air Force has faster planes available at Area 51.
