    I came across this at random today. I checked around to try and find verification on the story, and it seems that the basic details are probably true. Who knows for sure on the exact numbers though I wouldn't put something like this past pilots. I've known a few people that are pilots and this is the type of "prank" I can sooooooo see any of them doing in the same position. ;):

    The SR71 will forever be my favorite technological marvel.:cool:

    That's awesome, HK!

    As an old AF multi-engine pilot (B-36), I didn't have much opportunity to brag about ground speed...:(

    Yes, I did. Thank you :)

    Stuff like this makes me wish I'd listened to my HS Councilor and applied for the AF Academy...

    My youngest (now 15) has his sights set on it though... and hes way sharper than I am. :D

    Gotta feel sorry for that Navy jock! I'd love to find out if that's a true story.
