The Last Shout

Problem 1: A NASA office wants 3 ex-SR71 Pratt & Whitney J58 engines for research. They need to be checked out and confirmed to be in working order.

Problem 2: How to dispose of the last of the JP7 fuel used for these engines, as well as the really nasty triethylborane (TEB) used to start them.

Solution: Well, go see for yourself. These are guys we're talking about, ya know.

Can't see how this snuck past us when it happend, but hey, better late than never.
