  1. SR-71 represented a radical design and a major shift from the U2 spy plane….. The source of this had to had come from black projects that were not disclosed to the public. Kelly Johnson would of been privy to this kind of classification/top secret clearance in order to design such a plane.

  2. What do they mean by making aerodynamics like flat not too many angles for all types of fast plane US , but the sky is no limit , have trajectory and has that wind direction is not like other plane i cant understand why have balance if you doing more movement with fast speed if u want to do more movement to corner

  3. educational community?

    why do you name d-day? such an obvious retarded fraud happened there…..

    If only they landed somewhere else….. and how easy that would have been….

    No lets go into a massacre lik total retards~!

  4. Engineers: Sir, shouldn't we install countermeasures for missiles and stuff?
    Kelly Johnson: Speed.
    Engineers: But still, shouldn't we add some guns to it or something?
    Kelly Johnson: SPEED.
    Engineers: 1 missile?
    Kelly Johnson: S P E E D
