WOW! Another Flat 6 Valkyrie! That was a beast! Bet the mpg sucks! Look how the tires caught on fire during landing! We used to have one of the SR-71's on display outside the Richmond airport but it was moved a few years ago. The engine oil was so thick, it had to be pre-heated before starting the engines. And the tires had to be coated with a special heat resistant coating to prevent them from melting inside the searing heat of the fuselage.
