I would like to think something like a SR-91 exist's.
Surely the funding that is there in the "black world" can't just be spent on nothing ..(plus reporteted roumers that Lockheed's Skunk Works divisions staff parking area's are apparently full )and the famous sighting from Chris Gibson on a North Sea Oil Rig in 1989 of a AURORA type aircaft (triangular shaped was what he reported it to be)with a KC-135 and two F-111's)..I'm of a mind to think that it has been very much delayed in development to get the technology required for this sort of hypersonic Reconassisnce to mature and work effectively,anyway,does anyone not rember the PR poster Lockheed realised of a artistic rendering of a said SR-91 Aurora (think they called it a SR-72 attually ) ,also rember reading that apparently the SR-91 Aurora is a series of aircaft prototypes ,including the TR-3B and the ASTRA (Advanced, Stealth,Tatical,Reconassisnce ,Aircraft)(Air Vehicle Six (AV-6) 90-2414 this is the one that did allegedly visit Boscombe on the night of Sept 26,94 , a lot of the prototypes within the program called AURORA are just tech demonstrators to help mature the technology .But just to sumerise,you can never discount a black program from the outside,they are very hard to track,we may never know if a SR-71 replacement existed ,we can only go by reports such as the one from Boscombe ,so we can but hope that maybe one day (pehaps soon) they can feel comfertable enough to realise it out of the "black world"(rember how many years it took them to announce the F-117 to the public ) I very much belive that a Aurora type aircaft does exist and is currently matuering at places like Area 51 and Area 52 ( the recently extended runway at Area 51 at least would suggest this as well as the new (built sometime before 2007 ??) large hangar near the taxi ways would help support my theory ) .We just have to keep listerning and watching and hoping they publicly announce this sort of technology .
P.s also rember one thing ,it depends on weather they want us to know it exists or not,for all I know it could well be operating with a Special Flight Activities Squadron in pure securacy out of Area 51/52 doing real time recce work on current hostil countries of intrest ...
