It can fly up just over three and a half thousand kmph (just over 2000 mph), I don't understand how one can handle the G-force though.

Correct me if I'm wrong but G-force is connected with acceleration and not speed. You can move 3000 kmph without feeling any G-force but if you accelerate from 0 to 3000 in a short time you will feel very strong G-force.

It's the blackbird SR-71.   
   
When the designers were thinking,   
"Hey how can we make this jet so damn fast that it can outrun anything?"

One of the coolest things about the Blackbird was what the pilots wore.

Flying at 80,000 ft (24,000 m) meant that crews could not use standard masks, which could not provide enough oxygen above 43,000 ft (13,000 m). Specialized protective pressurized suits were produced for the pilots. Furthermore, an emergency ejection at Mach 3.2 would subject crews to an instant heat rise of about 450 °F (230 °C); thus, during a high altitude ejection scenario, an onboard oxygen supply would keep the suit pressurized during the descent.

They are planning the SR-72 now. Going to top out at about Mach 6.

Decomissioned in 1998.
The Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird.
An advanced long-range strategic reconnaissance aircraft.
Capable of Mach 3 and an altitude of 85,000 feet!

It's on my christmmas list...

It's odd seeing a couple people in the comments unaware of the Blackbird. I like in Nebraska and just under an hour away is the Strategic Air and Space Museum. The first thing you see as you walk in is this sexy beast. The SR-71 with the third most recorded flight miles of all 32 produced (serial number 61-7964)
Here's a few fun facts about it the Blackbird.
1) It originally was not designed as a spy plane, but a fighter. However, it flew so fast that it ran into the bullets it fired, causing that idea to be changed.
2) The high speed and altitude it flies at (up to Mach 3.3 and 80,000 feet) caused need for 100 hours of service for every hour flown.
3) Its shape is designed to make it difficult to see by radar, the first plane made to do so. However, the Lockheed Martin F-117 Nighthawk would later be produced and appears on radar as about the size of a marble, whereas the Blackbird was around the size of a dinner table on radar.

The bit that always made me really interested in the SR-71 as a kid beyond what it could do was the following: It couldn't hold fuel when it was on the ground... it had to be fueled up immediately before start up, and then refueled again once in the air! That and the fuel was specially made for the SR-71, and acted not only as go-juice, but as a heat sink and lubricant for the engine as well. Crazy ******* plane. Blurb follows to explain.

"The Blackbird had another quirky heat-thwarting feature: It leaked fuel. According to Lockheed Martin, 93 percent of the airplane is made of titanium alloy. Titanium expands as it is heated. To keep the airplane from crunching up like a soda can when it was flying at high speeds, the designers left gaps between its body panels. Consequently, fuel, stored in the airplane's body, leaked out onto the runway before take off. Once airborne and warmed up by friction, the titanium would expand, the gaps would seal and the Blackbird would be refueled before leaving on its mission."
