[Video Tutorial] The Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird

World’s first and fastest stealth aircraft

The SR-71 Blackbird is a Mach 3, long-range United States Air Force reconnaissance aircraft manufactured by Lockheed Corporation. The SR-71 Blackbird was designed by Skunk Works, led by the legendary Kelly Johnson. Skunk Works also designed the famous Lockheed U-2. The SR-71 Blackbird was ahead of its time in the use of technologies such as the Pratt & Whitney J58, titanium body and stealth capabilities.

Influential and timeless

The SR-71 Blackbird was the first generation of aircraft with a reduced radar cross-section. Today, it is slowly being retired from reconnaissance missions but is still preserved in Area 51. The Blackbird technologies are still as advanced as fifth- and even sixth-generation conceptual aircraft!

This time I made the SR-71 Blackbird out of black and yellow colored paper.

Here is the link to the video tutorial. Please give it a shot!
