Propulsion Systems - Non Submarine Type

On Fathers Day I took my son to the Rhode Island Air National Guard Air Show. With my digital camera I did a short photo essay of propulsion systems, non-submarine types.

C-130J Hercules Allison AE2100D3 turboprop engines with an all composite six-blade Dowty Aerospace R391 propeller system.

C5 Galaxy General Electric TF-39 engine rated at 43,000 pounds of thrust.

Coast Guard Boston Whaler patrol craft with twin Evinrude 175 MX engines.

Shockwave Jet Truck with 3 Pratt & Whitney J34-48 jet engines. The ShockWave Jet Truck with a Peterbuilt body does over 300 mph.

North American F-86 Saber with a single General Electric J-47 jet engine delivering 5,200 lbs of thrust.

The US Navy Blue Angles flying the Boeing F/A-18 Hornet with Two F414-GE-400 turbofan engines delivering 22,000 pounds per engine.

If your looking for a nostalgic submarine propulsion system the upcoming International Submarine Races June 27 - July 1, 2005 may be a place to look.
