Goes Fast, Flies High

The Badger Blogger picked up a habit from Chris, and gives us a good one:

The SR-71 holds many records for its class, including:

–Absolute speed record of 2,242 mph
–Absolute sustained altitude record of 85,068.997 feet
–Coast-to-coast speed record at an average 2,124 mph (coast-to-coast in 68 minutes)
–New York to London: 1 hour 54 minutes (Concorde averaged 3 hours 20 minutes, and the Boeing 747 averages 6 hours)

These records are all below the actual top speed, which is only said to be Mach 3.3+.

Follow the link for the picture.

Asian Badger doesn't even DREAM in those numbers...
