With the success of Top Gun: Maverick at the Academy Awards and its subsequent surge of attention, Lockheed Martin has been celebrating with a particular image on their social media page. This image features Tom Cruise’s character Maverick wearing the iconic flight suit and standing in front of an SR-71 Blackbird, known as the “fastest acknowledged crewed air-breathing jet aircraft.” While this alone is enough to excite aviation enthusiasts, there could be more to it than meets the eye. Could this hint at a secret high-speed jet in development?
