Pratt & Whitney J60

The Engine  Specifications
 
The prototype J60 (or JT12) first ran in 1958 with production beginning in 1960.

The J60 was also converted into a turboshaft engine for Sikorsky's S-64 Skycrane.  The turboshaft engine added a two-stage free turbine and was designated the T73 or JFTD12.

I've also been told the J60 was easily damaged by FOD. (e-mail from Rick Murray)
