Anyone attempting to fly an SR-71 as though it were a fighter (as portrayed in the show's special effects) would be in for a severe surprise, especially in the vicinity of Mach 3. The SR-71 is not an aircraft which tolerates being maneuvered violently. Compressor stalls owing to sudden airflow changes into the engines as well as a general loss of aircraft control would be the least of the pilot's problems! Also, a clear canopy, such as shown in the close-ups would never survive the heat of Mach 3 flight. See more »
"We're not talking Category 6.... we're talking Category 7!"
Dialog such as this turns what CBS was hoping to be a grand spectacle of disaster into a comedy of disastrous proportions. This is filled with numerous technical errors that speaking as a weather hobbiest, can give non-informed people the wrong impression of the true power of nature. Take for example a TV weatherman reporting a "Category 5 Hurricane with gusts up to 150MPH". 150 MPH windspeed is considered to be Category 4 strength on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane scale and gusts of 150 MPH would indicate sustained winds of around 135 MPH. Category 5 winds start at 156 MPH (sustained) and go up from there. Hurricane Wilma, for example, had sustained winds of 175 MPH with gusts over 200. FYI, there is NO Category 6 or F6 classifications for storms for good reason. 5 is considered top of the scale, period. But CBS (or any of Big Media) won't let the facts get in the way of some good sensationalism. The rest of the story consists of standard disaster film clichés. I'll likely watch the conclusion, as this is like watching a train wreck... you just can't turn away. Rated 5 out of 10 for the unintentional laughs and for Randy Quaid (Cousin Eddie the "twister chaser") :-)
