  • Skunk Works Vid

    Ive heard it referenced a million times, but to be honest wasn't quite sure what it was... till YouTube recommended this,

    An historical documentary about Kelly Johnson and Skunk Works, a division of Lockheed and the makers of many American iconic aircraft, such as the SR-71 Blac...

    Don't spend money and buy, spend time and learn.

      I watched the new top gun movie and it gave me great pleasure to see the Skunk Works insignia pop up on the Darkstar airplane and then also to see during the credits that they actually participated in the concept design and not just thrown in for eye candy. Can a manned airplane that isnt a space craft do Mach 10??? I'm sure by now they have done it, considering the X-15 hit Mach 6.7 in 1967...
