Anyone Seen D.A.R.Y.L.?

I remember how cool it was seeing the SR-71 scene at the end, its mostly BS poor green screen work but there is some great engine start footage and night take off from tail number 17964 (on display at the SAC museum in Ahsland NE) plus a couple of flyby shots. For some reason its always bugged me (even watching it as a kid) that a fully fueled and ready to fly jet was just hanging out and all it took to start it was to hop in and go. Now know what it took to get an SR-71 airborne it seems even more ridiculous. anyway, I can’t sleep.
