superfast jets

Flight_SuperFastjets_Cvr.jpg

The revolutionary jet engine enabled planes to travel faster, higher and farther than ever before. Check out some superlatives in jet plane design: the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird, officially the fastest jet; the biggest – the Antonov An-225, Airbus A380 and Boeing 747-8; and highest flyer – a MiG E-25 piloted by Alexander Fedotov. Weird stealth machines and jet aerobatics are not to be missed, either...
