Dude, manned or unmanned. Because if this thing is manned...how the hell? All I can think of is "Ludicrous Speed GO!!!!!" and Darkhelmet flying across the bridge. When it does that pretty thing it does. Hows a person supposed to survive that?

I've been lurking on ATS for a while now, this thread made me join.

Great information, I need to learn to read between the lines better.

Welcome! Have you checked out some of the other threads in the Aviation section? Highly recommended.

There's nothing to have to survive like that. They're accelerating with the aircraft.

So it's safe to say that the SR-71 records have been shattered. And by shattered, I mean, "what were those Blackbird pilots doing, walking?"

Wait, are you talking about the California sighting, or the one here in the south/southeast that I & a couple of other posters saw?

Either way, that's impressive speed no matter how you cut it. I'm no pilot (never even driven a car) but I'm still a little envious of the lucky pilot in that cockpit

I get that but that's some acceleration. There's got to be some heavy g forces when it does that thing it does. I've been to knotts berry farm and rode on that one roller coaster where they launch the train using an old air craft carrier catapult. Montazumas revenge or something. Even if you are strapped into the vehicle there is still some considerable g forces with the acceleration. They have got to be wearing pressure suits or something.

Either way. what a ride that must be. Anyways, Lucky bastards!


edit on 22-7-2014 by BASSPLYR because: got a little too enthusiastic. decided to tone it down a bit. but it really is THAT impressive.

The space shuttle on liftoff subjected the crew to around 3Gs at maximum, and under 2 for most of the launch (between 2 and 3 at SRB separation), and they ended up going a lot faster than this does.

You and me both. Wonder if we beg enough over the internet someone will knock on our doors with NDA's going "Hey wanna see something really cool? Step into this blacked out van, were going for a little ride somewhere." next thing you know were getting suited up and treated to ride of our lives. in exchange all we have to do is never, ever, ever tell anybody about it and sit on that experience like we have ants in our pants for the rest our lives wishing we could share. I'd be willing to shoulder that responsibility. Please powers that be me gets free ride of lifetime in fancy plane....please
I'm hoping if I beg enough ....


pweeeeze...

no? ....Ok.

yeah it just seems like it can get up to speed fairly quick. if it's leaving where I think it does, for it to get where i'm talking about before its feet wet it's got to get to that speed pretty quick.

Both actually. Neither one really undergoes a lot of G forces during acceleration. They might see 5, but I'd be surprised if it was even that high.

One moves like a rifle shot (and much faster) , but I can see that maybe it gets to that speed more gradually than it appears. So, i'll agree that the g forces are probably much more subdued than we would imagine. But the other leaves it's escorts like they are in the dust. I'm imagining your friend saw it cruising at the same speed as it's escorts. flipped some switch and then just burned them, taking off like a olympic sprinter vs a sumo wrestler in a 100 yard dash. Thats gotta be some heavy acceleration and g forces. but you're right probably not much more than 3 or so.

I bet it could buzz the tower and you'd not even know it did.

I remember when the aircraft doing air shows down in South Florida would park their birds at Opa Locka airport.

We'd get B1B bombers buzzing the tower full tilt. They make an awful racket. But it was awesome.

You know what would be really interesting? If they came up with a way to cancel inertia, so they could turn as hard as they wanted to without Gs being a problem.

Now you're just talking crazy talk!! Cancelling inertia! pffffft.



I wouldn't much past the folks engineering these birds.

yes. yes that would be very interesting. ah got something in my eye..makes it want to blink alot. wonder if something like thats in the patent office.

I'd bet you'd be right in regards to some craft we have. As for which. I only know of one. And it's dead silent. But I'm sure there are other platforms and birds that are pretty darned quiet too. Although what those are I don't know.


The B1. That thing is still awesome. I remember back in the day when Edwards still did air shows and they would scare the unsuspecting in the crows with the B1 during it's air demo. It would disappear over the horizon, sneak up behind everybody and do a .8-.9 mach low pass right over the crowd from behind your back showing up out of nowhere over the hangars. Was bad ass.

I thought they had that one figured out.

Post IOC, but hasn't reached FOC yet. It's doing operational testing and operational missions though.


So is this the kind of thing where when it goes on an operational mission over say, North Korea, the norks can see something moving really fast on radar but have no clue what it is?

Between its stealth, and cruising altitude, good luck even seeing it on radar.

I dout they would even see it on radar.
