Goofs When the pilots are discussing the SR-71, they mention 'the usual weapons.' The SR-71 never carried weapons; its construction was too light to support them, and the plane went so fast that they'd be hundreds of miles away from its target by the time it fired. The SR-71 was the best reconnaissance aircraft ever made, superseded only by satellite intelligence, but it was completely unarmed. See more »
