SR-71 THE MUSCLE CAR OF PLANES

This aircraft was made with new materials that hadn't been worked into an airframe before, and it pushed the boundaries of manufacturing tech in ways that will have subtly influenced many pieces of consumer gear. 

It was the first slightly "stealthy" plane. It navigated by spotting stars and flew so fast it could outrun bullets and missiles. At top speed it could take the entire length of a country to slow down.
