I think you have one too many naughts in there Luke. At that rate it would cover over half a mile in a second !! The record is 242mph recorded in 1995 (according to Wikipedia)

I'm sorry Luke but it must be a misprint - If you do a Google search they all point to around 245mph. At the speed you quote they would not be able to physically pull out of a stoop.

2060mph . . . Concords cruising speed was around 1200mph at 60,000 feet . . . . and I think the Blackbird was only capable (Temperature limited to 427 CIT ) of 2160mph (Mach 3.3) at 85,000 feet, As good as he peregrins design is I do suspect a misprint Wink
