in the F111 the fuel dump nozzle is right between the engines....the trick the aussies used to do for airshows is called the dump and burn....open the fuel dump..hit the Afterburners and watch the fire ......impressive at airshows...not good tactically.......but definitely a show stopper......


here's a classic video on the B58 Hustler that used to stand nuclear alert for SAC back in the day.....

I got a real close look at a B-58 Hustler at the Pima Air & Space Museum in Tucson, AZ. Cool Aircraft!
