I have been there a bunch of times but they never had a Goose. I may have to stop by when I'm up there next month. If I can talk my wife into it anyway... we was just there last August. :-lol

Hi,Some nice shots there. Looks like a 2 stage centrifugal compressor. Would've been neat to see the turbine. 1st time seeing it's innards. The F15 and F16 jfs I've had a look though. Cool stuff.Jim B.
