"A very large plane that can actually launch smaller aircraft"...US's 'aircraft carrier' in/of the sky?

That's cool. Aurora was actually once in the budget accidentally. Why would the SR-71 be retired without a replacement? It takes time to move satellites and they are dependant on good weather. I have an Air Force buddy (mechanic) who claims to have worked on it, but he was also drunk at the time so I don't know if he is full of crap. He claimed it would do more like Mach 8. I honestly don't think the human body can take those speeds, but I am neither a doctor nor a physicist.

Personally Freddie, I don't think the Blackbird is 'fully' retired, per se'.


I think that the 'Aurora' is real. Funding may be gone, again, per se', but I do think that a few exist. Funding may fall under 'toilet seats and hammers'...if you know what I mean and then under 'undisclosed projects'.
Here is an article to read that you might find interesting. The article, per se', comes after the specs for the 'Aurora SR-X':

Well, there's an interesting development to say the least. Looks like the Navy may have lost its monopoly to a small extent. It'll probably just be used to deploy drones like Darkstar in greater quantities.

There is some info on this site about an aircraft just like this, though ATS says it was used as a platform to launch space vechicles. The ATS site even has the same pictures as the Area51 site. ATS says that the plane was based on the XB-70 bomber. They do sare a resemblance.
