    It leaks just as much as the Bayliner does!

    I'm not sure which shitbox should be the Bayliner's anchor

    The biggest regret of my life is not buying the Southwest 737-300 winglet when I had the chance. It was so cool.

    I watched a YouTube vid awhile back about how when the US retired the SR71 they kept almost 200,000 sq ft of warehouse storage space filled with spare parts for it for over a decade, out in the desert. Then they decided to destroy it all. The guy giving the presentation was in charge of organizing the destruction of all of it.

    Imagine having had access to that shit

    Good god.

    I can't really blame them, they don't want it falling into the wrong hands so it could be reverse-engineered.

    It was less about that I think and more about the cost of housing all that equipment that was basically becoming obsolete. I mean the SR71 itself and spy planes in general were made obsolete by satellites anyway.

    NASA used it for a short while which is the only reason they kept the spare parts around for that long I think

    The speed check story by one of the SR-71 pilots is one of my favorites:

    haha yeah I've seen that one. Such a crazy feat of engineering especially when you consider that it was designed and built without any aid from computers.

    Also the fact that the CIA got all the titanium to build the SR71s and prototypes by creating dummy corporations all over the world to buy it from Russia, so that we could build the plane needed to spy on them during the Cold War lol.

    Yeah sr71 is my favorite, that book focuses more on how they pulled it off the u2, 71 and 117 from a development perspective. Skunk works was a heck of a place to be then.

    Seriously...would've loved to have been near those AFBs where they tested and flew them out of back then.

    I'm actually removing mine soon and replacing with tile. Only had it 2.5 years and I've got irrecoverable scuffs everywhere, bowing, and even a couple cracks.

    Can only imagine the crazy secrecy around those projects. Going to work and fiddling with things like the movable cone on those engines, and then not getting to tell all my friends at home would probably break me . :laughing:
