Did this video help you?

Check Out These Videos: I believe that the bypass tubes transfer the increased pressure created by the spikes and the inlet at high mach number to the after burner creating a ram jet. They are key to the power at high mach.number, they also divert the air that is so hot from compression that it would melt the turbine if allowed to proceed through the engine at mach 3.2. If this is wrong then how does the air get from the inlet to the afterburner at high mach?

dominicfhk: Southwest jet back there lol?

GIANNHSPEIRAIAS: russians tried that bypass system too and gained massive amount of thrust and it was still inferior to j58 why they do say that they gained a little bit from a turboramjet engine basicly?

SR-71 TITANIUM: Erik, your videos are excellent ! If you ever want an SR-71 Titanium ring made from Blackbird Turkey Feathers send me an email.

Rodrigo Perez: Great video, thank you.

Ano Nymous: well explained

Victor Emanuel: I've read Col.(USAF ret.) Richard H. Graham's Book "Flying the SR-71 Blackbird" and found it to be an informative and excellent read. If you love aviation, If you LOVE the Blackbird and want a sense on operating its systems and how it was like to really fly, then I Highly recommend his book. Excellent video, Thanks for Sharing!!! #aviation #sr71blackbird #mach3plus

David Ewing: I understood the bypass tubes were to improve the fuel efficiency of the afterburner. 

newcoyote: If you want to learn more about gas turbine/jet engines, check out AgentJayZ here on YT. He explains the systems and function jets and industrial gas turbines very well. Before watching his videos, I thought I knew a lot about jets. I was wrong. Excellent source if you're into this kind of thing. Just started with this channel. Also looks very good so far. 

MsCordially: oh crap ! what's that orange thing hanging from the rOOf !!?!

Magnus Andersen: No flame holders in the afterburner, how do they prevent flameout ? anyone ?

Sterlingjob: Concorde could fly at mach 2 without afterburner!

BlueStarsWildAnimeStudio's: fly all the way;) miss malmstrom aim high rockon;)

anthony rossi: the turkey feathers.... really

ElectronHexagon: If you would really like to understand how the engines work check out this video: youtu.be/F3ao5SCedIk

Denver Morgan: This should really be classified imho.

Denver Morgan: Why do we need to tell the whole world how we made this great airplane let them figure it out them selves.

Haider A: What an amazing insight. Thank you. 

Jim Thompson: Very interesting!!

deadboy600: Two of these puppies sucked up 36,000-44,000Lbs. of go juice per hour! 5-6 pounds each per second!! Hard to comprehend.

Paulo Feitosa: Thanks, uploader. I have several of his books, when was this?

T38 Talon: I found this vid to be very enlightening on the engine's operation. Although, nothing like meeting a pilot/mechanic and hearing their stories. I do that each year at the Air Races in Reno. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F3ao5SCedIk

DEEREMEYER1: I've got two of those in my go-kart. It's pretty fast.

HybridTheorykid1: As amazing as this thing is - It amazes me to think that they had this technology back in the 60's! Yet- It still remains unbeaten, 50 years on. Hats off to Lockheed Martin and Skunk works. I've been in love with this plane since I was around 12, and I'm 32 now. I saw one of these parked up in NYC.. What was it, USS Intrepid. I will NEVER forget that moment.

Don G.: PLEASE DON'T FORGET BEN R. RICH! IF IT WASN'T FOR THIS SKUNK WORKS ENGINEER, JOHNSON COULD NOT MAKE THIS BIRD FLY. HE IS THE ONE THAT INVENTED THE MOVING SPIKES SO THE ENGINE COULD INJEST THE MASSIVE AMOUNT OF RAM AIR. FROM THE BOOK "SKUNK WORKS" THAT I PURCHASED AT LOCKHEED IN PALMDALE, CA. 

wkeil1981: How do you start this?

jared lewis: Aliens

Ravi Krishna: plane engines - design - people who made it are all legends. I learned a lot in just 4 mins today 

Filip Talpa: SR-71 J58 Engine Tour

Chan Calvin: Great explanatory! 

Greg Kundtz: thanks! a great help for a project i'm doing about compressible flow

NADINE STAUEFENBIEL: A simple engine kelly got the design of the craft from me.

David Govett: It's always disappointing when magic is explained.

John Doe: How can you dislike this? 3 people are descendants of the Soviet Union 

Андрей Рогачёв: SR-71 J58 Engine Tour

euplot: Thaks a lot for all this nice videos! 

N1H1L9: I really thought those by-pass tubes provided a lot more thrust than this guy seems to think. It's such a neat idea for switching from turbo to ram-jet power, I don't know why it isn't more commonly used- apart from the difficulty of building planes that can function at the speeds it would enable of course.

Thema inproblem: Great video! Thanks for uploading it for us. 

jjohnston94: Thanks for putting up all the distracting "subscribe" links every few seconds.

Michael Millson: mr fitzhenry that is a crappy attitude how fast do you think wed have to go to build a plane that could renter and leave an atmosphere of another world this isn't just a chess set that's why they chose the united states to be the stick in the yard

Sphere723: These 6 bypass tubes on the J58 are not actually the main bypass used for the ramjet as some people seem to think. The main bypass is built into the nacelle itself and sends air completely around the outside of the J58. The ramjet air is not just skipping a stage in within the J58, it skips the J58 entirely and collects/exhausts behind the J58. It is hard to show that when the J58 has been removed from the nacelle, but that is what Rich means when he says this engine is only supply 20% of the thrust at mach 3. The other 80% is coming from the ramjet "engine" which is the nacelle itself.

TotenKopf42: After watching this and other SR-71 videos - My first thought was - I think I am in love :))) Unreal plane - real shame he "had to go" (retirement). As for dislikes - those people are definitely not USSR descendants - how can they be if at least 80% of this plane has been made from materials illegally acquired by CIA from USSR :)

Peter Senna Tschudin: How many energy does it need to fly at mach 3.2? It depends on how smart you use the shock waves...

Federico Melotti: .

Terry Floyd: SR-71 J58 Engine Tour

Eric jones: This guy is a pilot so i will give him a break. Those bypass tubes are to bypass the engine so it can go 'ramjet mode'. Simple.
