Westinghouse J34

The Engine Specifications
By 1944, Westinghouse was working on three derivatives of its first axial engine, the 19A.  The largest of this family, the 24C (24 inch diameter), became the J34.  The earliest flight I can find for the J34 is in 1947 powering the XF2D-1 Banshee.

The J34 had a long career with a few surviving into the 1980s.
