    I for one, believe that Michael Bay has mislead us on a few items. Michael Bay is all about using new and improved vehicles. He always strives to shoot vehicles we haven't seen in action before. The SR-71 is simply to old of a Plane for Michael Bays tastes. It doesn't make sense, I'm sure the Air Force would lend Michael Bay something more visually appealing since he's depicting the armed forces in such a positive light.

    After Bays statement about the misleading leaks, I now think that the call sheet contained some inaccuracies. And Jetfire being a SR-71 is one of them IMO.

    Somebody (either Jetfire or another TF if it's a placeholder name, Soundwave maybe?) is an SR-71, I've seen the spy photos and heard the eye-witness reports, it's pretty clear the were filming the SR-71 Blackbird when they were at the Smithsonian - and the whole scene went just as the leaked call sheet described.

    the SR71 is one of the sweetest planes ever built and still is, it just oozes speed and is sexy black......... blasphemy

    i think to this day its FULL potential has still not been declassified last i checked (its full atlitude and speed capabilities) i mean the pilots wear space suits for cryin out loud

    there's been enough eyewitness reports to 80% confirm that the sr71 will be used, but as to it's role, theres no real confirmation on that

    My Dad worked on the SR-71 as part of the ground crew, and the stories he tells are amazing.

    My favorite is the story of one just about to land (100 feet off the runway), when an engine flamed out. The pilot firewalled the remaining engine, pointed it straight up, and bailed out at 10,000 feet.

    And there's stuff he's still not allowed to talk about, and he's been retired since 1985.

    Because that would make Soundwave the biggest bot out there and that just ain't gonna happen.

    Jetfire is 90% sure to the Blackbird. It's perfect for him, minus the lack of armament. Unless it's going to be Megatron's Earth form which I wouldn't complain about one bit.
