I saw a documentary of the SR-71 and during the years of operation an SR-71 was flying over Russia and was shot upon by an Ground to Air Missile. If
you do some research on what missiles were operational at the time and what speeds they could do you would see them ranging from mach 4-6.
You will need to provide the title of that documentary. Sounds like it is an embellishment or enhanced story of the SR-71 overflights of Libya during
1986. No Blackbird crew has ever gone on the record of stating that they went to fantastic speeds never seen before. The airframe had a limit.
See following for recount of Libya overflight in 1986.
That documentary would be well known to members of Roadrunners international and would be well documented.
