Mornin wingman,

Motors are the HET 700-83-1080.

T-38 is going back in the shop for a landing gear upgrade, and a few other items I want to take care of and get set up real nice, so jet will be grounded for a few weeks while I git er done.

Hi Stu,

Exhaust dia was opened up to 80mm the day before maiden. Ducting is a basic "V" wall from the center of the two fans out to the inlets.

Got this rig in the mail. GPS data logger. ATIS had one at SEFF and I thought I would get one. I will have it ride along on the next T-38 flight. Tells you top speed, average speed, altitude, and distance flown.
