That's gotta be fake.  The SR71 was retired long before people learned how to incorrectly hold an iphone while recording video.

Well now, you might be right. The tail number appears to be valid:

However...

"She was lost on January 10, 1967.  They were testing anti-skid braking systems when the main tires blew out, causing a fire that destroyed the aircraft.  Pilot Art Peterson survived; on this test, and most other flights of "Number 1," the RSO cockpit was empty."

And the SU-27 didn't enter service until the mid 80's. 

What's the tipoff on the iPhone video? I've got Android.

So assuming the video's fake, it's a good one. Here's the version off the guy's channel, not the short version.

Russian Su-27 fighter jets attempt to intimidate a USAF SR-71 Blackbird. (youtube.com)

I see in the notes it says "Created with DCS". Know what that is?

The camera orientation and aspect ratio.  It would have been more believable in 4:3 with some 80's style filters to simulate 420 lines of resolution.  

I really hate when people video some event with the camera held upright, recording in portrait mode.  It's like the opposite of wide screen, I guess you could call it unnecessary narrow screen.  Is it that hard to rotate the damn phone 90 degrees so we can get the whole picture.  Holding the phone in portrait mode is stupid, unless you are on a video call, then it's not stupid, because it makes sense.  I mean, have people forgotten how to take a damn video.

Digital Combat Simulator.  It's fake.

DCS is an ultra realistic flight simulator. I used to play it not long ago. It took me 3 days just to learn the start-up sequence for the F18
