Listen to the part about the Buick Wildcat 400 starter engine. Very interesting part of the SR-71 development.

Very cool.
It's sad to think that generation of badass Americans is about gone....

As an engineer the installed and maintained many programmable Combustion Turbine control systems, I’ve always marveled the non electronic control systems in power generation. In the 80’s and 90’s I upgraded from pneumatic controls on dozens of conventional plants using Bailey Net 90 and Westinghouse WDPF. Later upgraded those to ABB Sympathy plus and Emerson Ovation. Some very interesting times
