Pratt & Whitney TF30

The Engine Specifications (TF30-P-3)
The TF30 was Pratt & Whitney's first afterburning turbofan.  Selected for the F-111, there were problems matching the engine with the aircraft, specifically the inlet system.  The P-412 version for the F-14 required redesign and various fixes eventually leading the aircraft to be re-engined with General Electric F110 engines.

First flown in 1964, the TF30 was in production through 1986.
