Do you remember when the Democrats investigated G.H.W. Bush for flying to Paris France in a SR-71 to meet with the Iranians even though there was not one shred of evidence? There is significantly more evidence questioning Obama's documents that Bush's SR-71 ride to Paris.<quoted text>
"Credibility of witnesses and the weight to be given their testimony is a decision-making power that lies solely with the trier of fact. The trier of fact is not obligated to believe a witness even if the testimony is uncontradicted and may accept or reject any portion of the testimony." State v. Betsell, 144 Ga. App. 267 (240 SE2d 781)(1977). Tate v. State, 264 Ga. 53 , 56 (Georgia 1994)
Yep, but a lot of Libtards still believe he did!!!
Oh no air-breath aircraft can fly above 100,000 feet!!! Also, an SR-71 can exceed 3,200 mph for only a few seconds before things start to fail. At 5,000 mph, it would be a fireball!!!The altitude of this flight varied from about 45,000 to 60,000 feet, and the speed did not go above Mach 3 (approximately 2,100 miles per hour)-- though Russbacher has flown the SR-71 at speeds of 5,000 mph and altitudes of 140,000 feet, and beyond. In other words, this particular SR-71 flight was no more physically stressful on George Bush than if he had flown home in the Concorde -- though if Russbacher had pushed the SR-71 to its maximum, the experience could well have been an excruciating test of physical endurance for Mr. Bush.
Also, the SR-71 gets its best fuel mileage at 80,000 feet. If it flew less than that it would not have made it across the Atlantic without refueling.
Also, the crew has to suit up at least an hour before take off to purge their system of nitrogen. If they fail to do so, and there is a sudden decompression, they would get the bends the same as a scuba diver who ascends to fast would get. Have you ever noticed that astronauts do the same thing and for the very same reason.
