Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird: Designed using a Slide-Rule to look beautiful.

OK, I know there are many better media clips of the SR-71 out there, but this clip which has over 11 million views still puts a massive smile on my face. Apart from the fantastic music track (Oxygene IV by Jean-Michel Jarre), the Mach 3 + Blackbird when it banks at 35 seconds into the clip, still looks so futuristic today, even though it was designed in the early 1960’s using slide-rules, pencils & notebooks!
