D.A.R.Y.L (1985) SR-71 BLACKBIRD!!

  • Published on Jan 4, 2014
  • A Great Scene from My All Time Favorite Movie D.A.R.Y.L (1985) (ALL Rights Owned by "Paramount Pictures") I do not own this material and only hope that Paramount will allow me to keep it on RUclip. This Fantastic Childhood classic cannot be found in stores anywhere! I post this material with only the intent to show my Admiration for this Wonderful Movie and to encourage others to look up the film and buy it online for themselves as it is well worth the money! I profit nothing from putting up this clip.

      Its a film about a robot that looks like a 10yo boy and you worry about a plane having fuel.

    Truly one of the most inspiring scenes in 80s cinema... Who cares if it isn't factually accurate. How many young people fell in love with this plane because of this scene?? I did...

      Pratt & Whitney, not GE. And yeah, it's pretty close to real, but no external starters, just the TEB kick and the takeoff sequence were accurate enough. No embellishment needed for the afterburner shockwaves tho.

    full error movie the blackbird have a 45 000 l of fuel but for take off we need onley 15000 l because its too heavy for take off with full fuel capacity and no PW j 58 start with apu maybe this movie its base with a A 12 because the first A 12 have a pw j 75 engine but on the movie its a sr 71 a the j75 its starts wiath internal apu

    • John Simpson

      +a labbe Um, no. The A-12 deployed with J58 engines as well. It was the first test article that used the J75 because the J58 wasn't ready.

      It wouldn't be in the air if they'd shot out the tires. Real guards in the US Air Force don't stare idly as the thing they're supposed to be guarding rolls toward the tarmac.
      It's all moot, though, because the SR-71 never sat in the hangar all gassed up and ready to go.

    • Psy McDad

      @Mark Martin The plane was allready a couple miles up in the air at that point. So, the guards are excused for now. :3

      It is, always has been, and always will be one of the most beautiful craft ever built. Perfect lines and shape to spark the imagination of anyone who looks at her. When I saw the proposed designs for its successor, the SR-72... I damn near threw up. Then I had to take a step back and realize,... NOTHING new they ever design could possibly compare to the original Blackbird.

  • Condor1970

    Everyone keeps commenting on how it's impossible for him to breathe in the plane, or get it started by himself. This is all true.
    However, what I found the most humorous, is the SR-71 Blackbird, America's most secret spyplane, is just sitting there with no security guards, all fueled up and ready to go. LOL

      @Jordan Spieth I love this movie. The closest thing to a remake of this was the movie "AI" "Artificial Intelligence" which I really didn't care for all that much. Personally I think today's Hollywood lacks the substance to do a remake of Daryl with any kind of justice. What makes Daryl great is that it has so many of the elements that are missing from today's movies, Movies don't seem to have much heart and soul anymore. It's like they all come out of the same CGI bubble gum machine. As such very little stands out as being all that unique anymore. Just my personal oppinion. I suppose I could see a remake of this being good if it was done by the right people and focused more on realism, human emotions, and character development rather then on all the fluff.

    Hey military nerds: Nobody cares about the various nuances of operating an SR-71 in real life.
    Although it is amusing to watch all of you go on about it.

      Heh, true enough. But we do go on righteous fits when a movie company decides to go for good theater, circumventing practical physics. Interstellar, flipped that concept upside down with the black hole scene. That, was about as real as they can get.

    He spiked the turbines with tri-ethyl borene gas and manually started the engines all by himself.

      +BIG AL ONE Yeah. No Chevy engines reeving them up, either. And magically didn't have to refuel right after takeoff. He is a robot, though, so maybe he could get away with not having a pressure suit.

    Interesting fact about the SR-71 - it can't take off on a full tank of gas. It's too heavy. You have to take off with very little fuel, then refuel in the air, then be sure to land when the fuel's almost empty again.

      @mark clark is was the tires not the landing gears. Most sr71 crashes where caused by tire faliures

      @Jim Snow Sorry to have to tell you that whoever taught that class didn't know what they were talking about. That or they never looked in the now declassified flight manual www.sr-71.org/blackbird/manual/2/2-54.php Single engine refueling was hardly "normal" as evidenced by this page from the same manual www.sr-71.org/blackbird/manual/3/3-56.php also unlike any jet fighter engine at the time the engine and afterburner required ignition from a shot of TEB with each engine only having 16 shots www.sr-71.org/blackbird/manual/1/1-9.php so on a real world mission there was a finite number of times you could "cut" an engine as you say and then restart it.
