One of the ironies of its' production was, the world's largest producer, by far, of titanium at the time, was...the Soviet Union. There are stories about how enough titanium was procured through third parties in order to build the aircraft.

Yea...the article I read years back said the CIA set up shell companies in several countries to get titanium here.

I was lucky enough to view the mock-up in the very early days of design. A fantastic aircraft, especially considering the state of aerodynamics and computational technologies back then. As for it's speed record, don't forget that it is true for unclassified airbreathing aircraft....enough said

Comments about what they used while building it reminded me that my cousins husband has cancer along with others who worked on them due to the chemicals used on them. She said its quite common with the mechanics that maintained them.

The fuel was very toxic. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lockheed_SR-71_Blackbird#Fuel

My father died due to the effects of materials he worked with in the early 60's to mid 70's. Workers today owe a lot to the lessons learned based on the subject matter you reference.

I had a friend you also worked on those classified aircraft and later developed cancer and died. I believe very few people knew hot toxic some of those material coatings were.
