The Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird began surveillance flights in the early 1960s. Topping out at mach 3.3 (2500 mph or 4100 kph) and reaching heights of up to 85,000 feet, the Blackbird was capable of out running surface to air missiles. To this day it still lays claim to aircraft speed and altitude records. Original designs featured an unpainted titanium skin, but travelling at such speeds generates tremendous friction and heat. Designers applied a matte black heat dissipating paint finish, thus earning it the nickname 'Blackbird'.
