Great video and testament to what I have seen within the Walls & Halls of GE Aviation, everything starts with Quality and progresses through Reliability from the initial design to the finished highly tested engine.
A proven fore runner is the J79 Turbojet engine that still operates supporting foreign military missions and is used on the Alaska pipeline (LM1500). The J79 turns 60 years of service to power the F4 Phantom aircraft in 2018, no final mission date has been announced currently. The Compressor Variable Vane air flow system design was first used in the J79 Turbojet engine prior to 1958, the year it first powered the F4 Phantom aircraft.
