The Lockheed SR-71 is without doubt one of the most advanced aircraft ever built. Built from a need to go higher and faster, in complete secrecy, a total of 31 SR-71s were built including two trainer models. The only manned aircraft ever to cruise above Mach 3, the SR-71 flew over most of the hotspots around the world and was able to bring nearly real-time intelligence on what the enemy was doing. During its career it was said to have outrun hundreds of missiles fired in attempts to down it. After being retired from the USAF, NASA acquired two SR-71s for high speed research programs. In 1995 the SR-71 program rose like a Phoenix and re-entered the USAF inventory operating from Det 2 at Edwards AFB - utilising #971, #967 and the 'B' model #956. But in June 1999, the SR-71 operations from Det 2 were closed down amid a lack of operational deployments, and the SR-71's fate was sealed in October 1999 when NASA's #980 flew its last ever flight.

 

This aircraft was designed primarily with P3D V5.3 in mind and therefore the FSX and P3D V4.5 versions are limited by these platforms nuances.

 

Features:

 

  • Authentic flight model based around the SR-71 pilots manual
  • Working TEB counters - 16 shots of TEB providing only 16 uses of afterburner per engine - don’t waste them or its a long slow flight home! (This requires XMLtools for your sim version).
  • Drooping Elevons on Hydraulic pressure loss
  • Fuel transfer & Centre of Gravity control panel
  • Fully independent VC night lighting (panel lights and flood lights
  • with adjustable intensity gauge lights)
  • Automatic and Manual Engine inlet Spike control system
  • Independent engine controls and afterburners
  • Afterburner effects
  • Full tank leak effects in flight
  • Crew access ladder (on parking brake)
  • Engine Start Carts (from the Ground Equipment panel - Shift-6)
  • Brake cooling fans (parking brake, Spoiler and fuel above 30%)
  • Fuel dump switch with cut-off at 10% remaining
  • Anti-skid brake switch
  • Air refuelling receptacle switch
  • Animated pop-out anti-collision lights with multiple settings
  • Fully Mach 3+ and 80,000+ feet capable
  • Realistic undercarriage with authentic retraction sequence
  • Pilot and RSO Virtual Cockpit (Shift-A and A to cycle)
  • Afterburner free floating exhaust petal animation
  • Animated engine tertiary doors at Mach 1.5
  • Drag chute movement based on Alpha and Beta values (spoiler)
  • Prepar3d V5 only downwards Viewsight
  • Prepar3d V5 only ground radar
  • Prepar3d V5 PBR textures
  • VC rain effects on canopy glass
  • See the Prepar3d/FSX world at 30 miles per minute!

Features not possible in FSX are the PBR textures, the downward looking Viewsight and Radar display in the RSO (rear) Cockpit.  Cockpit 'Dynamic Spotlights' are only available in P3D V5.

Wow, what an upgrade! I had the Cygnus for a while and have always enjoyed it but things didn’t feel complete without an actual SR-71 Blackbird in the stable. Sure this is a slightly dumbed down version but it does deliver on speed and performance expectations.
Speed is what this does best, performance not so much. Zero aerobatic capability in an unforgiving airframe can’t be overlooked. GH did a fair job modeling the flight characteristics but was lite on systems especially the FSX version. No radar of any kind for the FSX version (which is the version I use) and a few less other systems as well. No cabin temp or pressure control. You can turn on the oxygen but that’s it. The FSX radar limitation bugs me because I have older planes that DO have radar or a periscope function that work fine. So why not here? That and you also can’t turn on much of anything in the backseat. You get a moving map but cannot adjust the range or terrain function. I have more advanced passenger liners complete with ground and weather radar that work fine, so what’s the FSX limitation here? I don’t get it and that’s why I knock off 1 star because frankly if my 777 has it, then surely a Blackbird could too?
Whatever the case with the simplistic and limited systems or lack of it’s still a really nice flying SR-71 with a great selection of rail art liveries to choose from. They are all very nicely detailed and you cannot get them anywhere else, so love it or leave it. I choose to mostly love it!

One last thing and this may be a new release bug, but if I so much as tap the radar power button I get a horizontal red line across the mid screen over the primary compass, then after ending the flight a error message I forgot to note pops up and forces FSX to close. As long as I do not touch any radar buttons everything is just fine.

All in all it’s a great upgrade to the old Cygnus and it wasn’t terribly expensive so all is well.

Based on use with FSX Steam Win 10 3.3ghz Intel i7 16GB Ram Intel UHD 630 integrated GPU excellent frame rates, no loss.
