The Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird is known as the fastest manned aircraft in the world with a top speed of Mach 3.5 (1,160 m/s in the readings in game) (being the second on the overall aircraft because of the Boeing X-51 with a top speed of Mach 5). This is not a ordinary Blackbird, like most of the posted Blackbirds that has almost the same top speed of 230+ m/s in game, this Blackbird has a top speed of 1267 m/s (which is Mach 0.3 higher than it’s real life counterpart) when maximum throttle. It maybe fast but the engines drink a lot of LiquidFuel in 1 second and a minimum LiquidFuel (only has 2400+ units of LF). Also being lightweight helps for its top speed. However testing and experiments are still on progress. Wernher von Kerman (Chief rocket engineer) is still powering the engines to maximum override and being flown well at higher speeds.

Interesting fact:
Despite the RamJet has only a total of 130kN of thrust (260kN of thrust total), I used 8 RamJets (4 on each side and merged together) making the total thrust is 1040kN of thrust.

A stock aircraft called SR-71. Built with 99 of the finest parts, its root part is mk1Cockpit.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.0.5.

WARNING: Unstable in tight turns in top speed.
