A PREVIEW OF YOUR CAREER AT GENERAL ELECTRIC
                         Achieving Thrust for Mach
When the North American Aviation XB-70 established a mile-
stone by achieving Mach 3 flight, it was powered by six
General Electric J93 jet engines. That flight was the high
point of two decades of G-E leadership in jet power that
began when America's first jet plane was flown in 1942. In
addition to the 30,000-pound thrust J93's, the XB-70 carries a
unique, 240-kva electrical system that supplies all on-board
power needs-designed by G-E engineers. The challenge of
advanced flight propulsion promises even more opportunity
at G.E. GETF39 engines will help the new USAF C-5A fly more
payload than any other aircraft in the world; the Mach 3
GE4/J5 is designed to deliver 50,000-pound thrust for a U.S.
Supersonic Transport (SST). General Electric's involvement
in jet power since the beginning of propellerless flight has
made us one of the world's leading suppliers of these prime
movers. This is typical of the fast-paced technical challenge
you'll find in any of G.E.'s 120 decentralized product opera-
tions. To define your career interest at General Electric,
