    So I have been reading up on the SR-71, it sure was an amazing aircraft. From what I know, none of the surviving planes fly anymore? And I have heard a lot of rumours of some secret aircraft called Aurora capable of flying at Mach 8? Can anyone shed some light on this?

    Unless there's a new one, the [rumored] Aurora is from about 30 years ago. I don't think there's ever been any evidence that it existed, but if I'm wrong, I'm sure someone here will be correcting me shortly. :D

    I don't think I've ever heard mach 8, though... maybe 5 or 6.

    So... anyone... is this the same Aurora from the 80s, or is something new being developed?
