But what has replaced it, worked on these in the early 80's, the cameras were as impressive as the flight spec.

the camera specs are impressive as well but for me its the plane its self just amazing. as for the replacement for it i think they are combing a lot of different roles in to one plane these days. like the jsf for one. gone are the days of the 1 role 1 plane.

Yep, brilliant plane well ahead of its time performance wise. Was known as a bit of a 'hangar queen' though due to the amount of time it spent in them. I believe the fuel tanks used to leak fuel on the ground but expand and seal at mach 3+. Has something called the Aurora replaced it? Rumoured to be hypersonic. Don't know if this is the same thing as Lockheed TR3A 'flying triangle', something else which also crops up.

I did hear about the aurora but i think the skunk works are keeping that one under wraps as to its operational status. the sr71 had cold fuel special designed for the 71 i saw a video of a bucket of 71 fuel blowing out a lit match. with out a doubt my fav plane ever. the look of it and the flight spec.

They had to develop a specific fuel specifically because it leaked like a sieve on the ground - how they ever filled the tanks is beyond me Grin
We visited the one on display at Duxford and even close up it is looks awesome and sinister all at the same time.
