SR-71 was expensive but it had built in obsolescence. No one ever thought there would not be a better one coming behind. After the planes were made and the contracted spare parts were made, all the tooling was destroyed so it could not be duplicated. SR-71 ran out of parts. Too expensive to retool. By By to one of the greatest planes.

I've been thinking about it and I want to take a bunch of friends flying at once in something like a Handley Page Hp.42:


To exotic places


Like the surface of Mars?


Just look at the size of the thing, it's like flying a mountain


Apparently the control wheel is on the same scale as the rest of the plane

Someone has already started a project to build a Handley Page. Someone must have the time and money.
