    I believe 78-0002 has been rebuilt, but it suffered an engine fire when it tossed a compressor blade through one of the fuel-fed blade control lines. The aircraft was at EOR in a line with at least a dozen other aircraft. The whole thing was witnessed by a bus load of civilians on the Thursday Luke AFB tour. The right aft portion of the aircraft took the brunt of the damage. I think CLSS fixed it at Hill.
