You are correct. Check this out:


As for the true speed, I have spoken with some former pilots who work at the Hazy center...I think this is fairly accurate: Blackbirds Myth & Fact

and this: Flying the SR-71 Blackbird

WOW I cannot thank you enough! the 2 links were great. The first engines shown were the Buick 425 ci nailheads as they called them. They werent superhigh horsepower motors but they made alot of torque. The "nailhead name came from the way the valves were small and were put in the heads perfectly perpendicular. You can see how the valve covers were straight up I believe I heard once of something like Mach 5 or 6 I guess only you would know (lol)
