The jet engine on each wing has a hydraulic driven inlet door that closes when not in use so the turbines do not windmill inflight causing bearing failure.

The pods seen under the wings are actually small jet engines which are used on takeoff only. The jet engines burn on 115/145 Avgas. The mechanics called them Westinghouse defuelers.
The two radials are 18 cylinder, aircooled, Wright R3350-32WA engines, rated at 2,800 horsepower, driving Hamilton Standard hydromatic propellers. A unique aircraft in that on takeoff you hear the radial engine and the Westinghouse J34-WE-36 turbojet engines. Sounds like two aircraft in unison!

Most will bank right after takeoff on R35 to avoid the nearby Mirador mountain range. You can see how the clouds hang around the mountains making a clearing attempt dangerous.
