    I love this quote: "..and as the fastest plane ever-and only 93 Air Force pilots ever steered the 'sled,' as we called our aircraft."

    The sled. They're as big as a barge as far as a "spy" plane goes. But thats comparing it to the drones that last years PS3 gamer is now flying to keep us safe at night.

    That was an excellent read. It is to imagine how fast they were going.

    yeah what did it for me was they're flying faster than an actual bullet, and the plane expands and contracts so much that it's normal for fuel to leak out on the tarmac
