SR-71 Blackbird and Titanium



With its first flight in 1964, the SR-71 Blackbird is 90% titanium due to titanium's high strength, temperature resistance and light weight.

An interesting fact is that the titanium used to build the SR-71 Blackbirds came from the Soviet Union via dummy companies set up by the CIA.

The SR-71 Blackbird set many world speed and altitude records and still hold some today.
