This is the mighty Blackbird's exhaust nozzle
The muzzle velocity of a high powered, 30-06 rifle bullet is 2910 feet per second.
The Blackbird can fly at 3226 feet per second.
Of course that bullet starts to slow down as soon as it leaves the rifle barrel.
The Blackbird continues to fly at MACH 3+ and then accelerates faster.
How is it possible to fly faster and get better fuel mileage?

A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE SR-71 BLACKBIRD
Lockheed SR-71 was an advanced, long-range, Mach 3 strategic
reconnaissance aircraft developed from the Lockheed YF-12A and A-12
aircraft by the Lockheed Skunk Works. The A-12 was developed and tested
during the early 60's under the Top Secret "OXCART" program at AREA 51.
The SR-71 was unofficially named the Blackbird, and called the HABU ("snake") by its crews. Clarence "Kelly" Johnson
was responsible for many of the design's advanced concepts. A
last resort defensive feature of the aircraft was its high speed and
operating altitude; whereby if a surface-to-air missile launch was
detected, standard evasive action was simply to accelerate. The SR-71
line was in service from 1964 to 1998, with 12 of the 32 aircraft being
destroyed in accidents, though none were lost to enemy action.
Below is a very rare photo showing the "Father" of the SR-71, top secret Code Name, the A-12 (Archangel-12), the 12th and final design concept that was approved for the CIA contract of a high speed, high altitude reconnaissonnce aircraft. Seen here, unpainted bare Titanium, a miracle of aviation.
She was later Christened by her crews with the name "CYGNUS".
