General Electric/Allison J-35

General Info

Specific Info

The General Electric/Allison J35 engine was the United States Air Forces’ first axial-flow (straight through airflow) compressor engine. The J35 was fairly simple, consisting of an eleven-stage axial-flow compressor and a single-stage turbine. The design originated at General Electric, but major production was by the Allison Engine Company.

 

The J35 engine was used in many prototype aircraft of the 1950’s, but during the same decade was used as the engine in the two leading fighters by the USAF: the F-84 Thunderjet and the Northrop F-89 Scorpion.

This model is a J35-A-5, featuring 4,000 lbs of thrust.
