This is a non-functional concept combinator so use the Editor to customize to your needs. Zip includes the 6U combinator pictured, plus separate transparent PNG backdrop as well as the original photo JPG backdrop. SR-71 still rulez after all these decades! Go fast or go home :puf_smile:

This made me think of Turbine, one of my favorite plugins! It uses very impressive modeling. I've used it in my design for a few shows that called for planes flying overhead.

I was actually making a Combinator patch for it, but without an X/Y pad, it's not as good as just using the VST interface.

Yeah agree the SR-71 does rule!! Incredible feat of engineering!!

Amazing how it needs to be refueled soon after takeoff, because most of it's fuel leaks onto the runway before it takes off and heats up enough for the panels in the fuel tank to join properly.

Actually, that's a myth. From Wikipedia:
On a typical SR-71 mission, the airplane took off with only a partial fuel load to reduce stress on the brakes and tires during takeoff and also ensure it could successfully take off should one engine fail. As a result, the SR-71s were typically refueled immediately after takeoff. This has led to the misconception that the plane required immediate refueling after takeoff due to leaking fuel tanks. However, leaks were measured in drips per minute and were not significant compared to the overall capacity.

Interesting. So it turns out to be partially true. It does leak fuel, and it is because the panels are cold/not expanded together, but it isn't a lot of fuel loss or the reason for the need to refuel.

A bit more here.

Even today, this thing looks futuristic. The fact is was created in the early '60s makes it so much more amazing. And all titanium to boot – that stuff is so hard to work with. I'm still impressed after all this time.
