SR71 Black bird pilot tells a very cool story.

As the man says 'it don't get much better than that'. :-)

#1 A knot is a nautical mile per hour. A nautical mile is ~6076 feet, compared to the 5280 feet of a statute mile. That's about 15% longer, so to convert knots to mph, multiple by 1.15.

For this video, that makes the 620 knots of the Navy jet about 713mph, and the 1992 knots of the Blackbird about 2292mph.
