    It would have been a formidable fighter. The aerodynamic controls on the aero spikes was quite complex. The ability to maintain subsonic flow into the engines in all regimes was a real technical challenge that they accomplished flawlessly.

    Best video I've found explaining the (complicated) operation of the JT11D-20, aka the J58:

    "There is never enough time to do or say all the things that we would wish. The thing is to try to do as much as you can in the time that you have. Remember Scrooge, time is short, and suddenly, you're not there any more." -Ghost of Christmas Present, Scrooge
