I agree, better than the car, considering you are still quite new to the program, and not knowing your normal artistic aptitudes, I think it looks very good!

Don't understand why you've got transparency turned on for your materials.  You should also consider using Terranim8or to create a more realistic exhaust trail.

Experiment with Terranim8or It WILL give good results.

TIP: don`t use the default Particles make some of your own.

I am with Rudy on this regards transparency, The only thing that needs to be transparent is the cockpit, Which looks huge for a Blackbird! I did mention in an earlier post regards tailplanes being transparent...

A longer animation of its flight would also be advantageous.
