 The Ill-fated 1st Sage Burner (Robert F. Dorr Collection)

As it turns out, Kim Simmelink has done the work for me. See

I recommend that you take the time to review the posts on his blog.

Here are a couple that he didn't list:


  1. I didn't see this one..Israeli Mach 3 proposal July 18, 2012 topic

    Whilst on the subject of pre-compressor cooling I think I saw the other day mention that the Sageburner had some rudimentary water injection in front of the compressor.
    For added interest here's the MIG25 water/methanol spray mast.

    1. I didn't list the "aviationtrivia" post because I only listed mine. It's very interesting, though. Thanks for calling it to my attention.

      I only know for sure that there was a pre-compressor cooling installation in the Skyburner. If you look closely at a good picture of it, there appears to be a large tank in the aft cockpit.
