2003 Reunion

Charleston AFB Tour

This sure doesn't look like an R-2000, but I guess it works!  This is the F117-PW-100 engine (the military designation for the commercial Pratt & Whitney PW2040), the same as currently used on the Boeing 757.  They produce 40,440 pounds of thrust each and have a reversing system that diverts air upward and forward to avoid ingestion of ground debris.
