    OK, that was a stupid waste of time.

    And the point of that was……..?

    …to give you a head’s up about an interesting feature in our latest issue, and provide a few informative facts about an amazing airplane. This our first effort at creating an animation tied to an illustration in the magazine, so don’t be too hard on us. We have big plans for the future, and this is just a preview of things to come.

    I think it was a great simulation of the SR71.

  5. Robert Munsey says:

    After watcing and waiting for 10-15 minutes, when does the SR-71 actually show? Your print page shows more than this. I can’t recommend this to my friends and relatives. This sit is a waste of time.

    It only took about 30 seconds to come up on my screen. I’m connected by regular DSL, and I’m using a 2005 Optiplex
    gx520 with 1.5 GIGs of ram..

    Nice try with the animation, it was pretty cool. Although, I think more people would like it if it was Augmented Reality. Maybe try that with the next issue. :)

    Nice graphics and animation, great choice of music, too. Makes me want to buy the magazine and learn more! By all means, keep putting these animations up!!

    Sort of a waste of time. I was expecting much more. Apparently, this is a first effort. Fine. Keep trying. I’ll check back at some future date.

  13. Jeff says:

    Hope in the future you show us more about the past flight paths and failed drone program.

    What I came to appreciate after seeing this video is the amount of previously classified details on the SR-71 specs that was made available: and to think that for almost a quarter century the military denied its existence. How time and the SR-71 flies!
