Ballistics tests when?

spray a balloon  inside with this and have a giant spaceship

Make certain you don’t take off the breathing mask while spraying. Solidifying your respiratory tract could prove to be problematic.

SR-71 “buzzing the tower” of the NASA Dryden Flight Research Center.

Observable in the second gif are, I believe, flameouts made possible by the fact that the aircraft is in a high alpha turn, thus limiting the capability of the engine inlets to receive air.

Looking at this, the aircraft is nowhere near a high alpha situation. She is just in a right bank. The SR-71 was a bitch to fly. She suffered from compressor stalls and flameouts at slow speeds especially while decelerating.

Wouldn’t a compressor stall or a flameout warrant a full restart of the engine? I don’t think that’s what we’re seeing here, with the afterburner flickering so quickly. An engine (especially the blackbird’s) can’t be restarted that quickly.

I feel like what we’re seeing here is simply the burner cans coming on and igniting unspent fuel remnants in the exhaust.

Flameout, yes. Compressor stalls not necessarily require a engine restart.
You may be right though, it may be the unspent fuel. I by no means claim to be a habu expert.
