Jerrad Grinstead: very interesting and informative. thank you
Michael McKinley: Man Moment Machine. I love this video. The man who was actually there, explaining the bits and how it worked. Perfect awesome. thanks for sharing.
Magic mirror:1:00 The bypass is to do a RAMJET engine,only.
chrifus31037: ALIEN TECHNOLOGY....
NS2589: Really enjoy this guy. Seems very comfortable in front of a camera. So interesting to listen to him
Jason TBird: It would be much better if the info came form an engines troop than a pilot.
Peter Griffin: This guy is awesome and have the highest respect for him, but he said something that I think is incorrect....he said the bypass tubes added a "small amount of thrust", I've heard those 6 bypass tubes provided 80% of the thrust in supersonic flight which is why this is the only aircraft that uses less fuel the faster it goes. I'm I correct?
Billyboy: There is one of these sitting at castle afb about 30 minutes from my house. I love seeing it. It's crazy how small they are in person
TheMTrider16: Nice video, I've been listening to "Skunk Works" while traveling. After hearing the description from the book, its great to see engine in a video.
JosephHF: I could listen to this guy talk all night long.
apiece ofdirt: This guy is the crap!!
mike gray: Thanks for your service and the education about the sr-71.Wow! Thanks!
Brian Hoenig: Bummer the program was knocked out of the CIA in '63 after my grandfather was relieved of between 4-6 million in north Tahoe and conveniently killed in a plane crash. Kelly didn't have the knowledge of what was discovered in 1951 involving a scramjet and that this was to be in place of the ram air bypass. Would have put performance somewhere around Kingfisher and after satellites took over recon the program would have gone on into NASA, USAF would have gotten a better bird capable of Mach~5.
Paul Ferguson: Simply, thank you Sir.
K4rt80y: Ben Rich, Kelly's successor, was chief thermodynamasist on the A-12/Sr-71. Rich is what made the speed possible. The nacelles are a marvel.
Laurens Van Tuijl: Amazing stuff. Plane of the future... even though it is 60 years old... Shame.
Michel Tangy: Is the SR-71 a plane with two engines or is it two engines inside a flying frame?
Paulo André Torres: Great video, great analogy and explanation, simple and rich!
Byt3Games: I wonder if this engine would be good for a long range interceptor or maybe a long range interceptor/strike fighter?
Shariq Q: Horrendous, don't buy. Jerrad Grinstead: very interesting and informative. thank you Sven Brettschneider: @FuryLobo I don't have a playstation... Currently I'm really enjoying my NVIDIA GTS 460 graphicscard with an intel i7 processor.... so my computer actually isn't cheaper than a PS3, but I can do a LOT more with it... I also need this hardware for 3D modelling ... not only gaming. Every app and game on my computer uses OpenGL for the rendering. No complains out here about OpenGL. But ... I don't compain about DirectX either... Especially not on Windows. I just prefer OpenGL. Sorry. Ernesto Saucedo: In Goofy we Trust freak regular Jose Martinez: what's the song at 8 :53 juanramon6666: I should look better reasons to condemn a coin rather than the motives you are arguing. Maybe you are right, but they are visible at the eye. Maybe with a microscope. Besides.......both of them are restrikes, it's a very common this ducat of 1915 be found in a market as a restrike issued to sell the reserves of gold by the own government. (I talk about austrian gold coin) wroot: "Noooooooou" :)
