The SR-71 was first acknowledged in 1962 but the first prototype recognizable as a "Blackbird" was airborne in 1956, long before the Valkyrie flew.

Once again Crakr is blowing made up bullschitt out of his butthole like the good conservatard that he is.

I worked at the Skunkworks in the 80's dude. You're effing clueless.

What changed was, this was the beginnings of what is called "super cruise" now. That's supersonic flight without the need for afterburners.

It was also the first to use what is called "compression lift", which would save fuel. The XB-70 also tested out the panels that would eventually be integral to the SR-71 Blackbird for heat tolerance.

This plane was truly ahead of it's time and had the potential to shorten the cold war.

That was by far the most beautiful bomber ever built. When I went to the NMUSAF last year the surviving plane was not on display due to the shut down.
