Can you tell us if they are even using JP-7 or something else in those tanks?

Officially, they have flown two UAVs in a refueling formation, and a Lear flown by remote, with pilots on board, behind a tanker in precontact position.

So, officially they will be able to soon. *cough*

Nice video, I hadn't seen that one yet. I think it is the first time I've seen anything that gave a sense of scale to the SR72 (2:17 left side). It looks like the size of a small fighter.
It also shows LM UCLASS mock up or development prototype.

I thought that the lower spoiler in the wind tunnel was rather interesting. Haven't seen that configuration before.

Looks like some kind of bypass mechanism that spills higher pressure air from under the wing to the lower pressure zone above the wing? I image that would make that particular wing dip?

It's similar to current systems, but more efficient I would imagine.

Yes nice looking of the SR-72, there is a reference of the size in each plane of the hangar interesting. We see on the top of the SR-72 pictures a refueling system, the size look the same of a fighter.

No, this is light years ahead of Concorde. And doesn't carry passengers.

Does this one leak like a sieve too?

The secret ingredient to stealth paint is... embedded iron filings and a leaky airframe.

Comes with a warning sticker: DO NOT GET WET.

The SR-71 leaked because it had to.

That's not a secret to stealth paint, while some do have the iron balls you mentioned, it's only the SR-71 that leaked and that was because the titianium it was made from would heat up and expand when it was flying.

The SR-71 wasn't all that stealthy to radar, they could see it coming they just didn't have much at the time to shoot it down.
