Here is a radio transcript of the "fastmover" seen by Swiss guys from Tikaboo in 1999.
The tape was running from 5:50 to 8:45 AM that day(8 September 1999).
The "fastmover" used a callsign with "...745"-end. Then there is a communication starting with words "Four Five... I've got your numbers for Silverbow.." I wonder if it is a communication related to "fastmover" or not because "Four Five" is not the same as "...745". If it would be the same it means that "fastmover" headed to TTR.
What are you thinking about this radio communications? Any clues, ideas??

They were removed from the aircraft and almost all of them were placed in storage. I nosed around but couldn't find out if they still stored or not.
It is an interesting little aviation mystery that I have never thought of. There are plenty of engines at Montham but its hard to tell even if you are on that tour, and most museums have ONE J-58 (very few have 2 at least on display)
Any idea of total production? The YJ-93 of the XB-70 also would be interesting (I know they produced alot less of them)
