We haven't known a lot of details for SENIOR PROM for very long, so he may not have been aware how many flight articles there were way back when that was written, nor when the program was actually active.

That being said it is entirely possible this is referring to a wholly different object.

Back in 1993 Galoob Micro Machines produced a gift pack with an SR71, Aurora andTR3 in plastic, about an inch or so long.

I was a huge fan of Micro Machines but never got this set sadly, They did pretty good at modelling a range of aircraft (always gutted that the outers wings on the Tu-22M didn't move like the Tomcat's did) and presumably these were based on artists impressions of the times.
