Great video, thank you! SR-71 is one of my favourite aircraft ever, it's just so unique.

And they were facing these most of their career (also evening launch at the end):

Crazy machines both in different ways...

The long nose MiG-25 always was so iconic, much in the same way SR071's delta wing. They just screamed, "FAST!"
