The JT8D does not power the AWACS and is the JT3D

Yes the JT3D (TF33 in USAF parlance) was the original engine, but some were re-engined with JT8Ds - others were re-engined with CFM56s... GCarty 13:12, 16 August 2005 (UTC)

I have yet to see a KC-135/VC-137 etc. with the JT8D- only CFM56s, J-57s and TF-33s. Would be interested to view pic of JT8D birds though, hey, I could be wrong.

However, one company did use the JT8D-200, in what seemed to be MD-80 nacelles, in a civil B707 conversion- I saw this airplane recently at LAX in a corporate paint scheme, beautiful. I think the mod was done at San Antonio as I saw the plane there a lot in flight test in the late 90s...

The JT8D is not on the AWACS or JSTARS - yet. Marimvibe 06:48, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

I would absolutely LOVE to see some of the old DC-9's/727s/707 re-engined with the new JT8Ds and put back into service. Maybe even back into production, considering how successful they initially were. If the old engines were the only reason they went out of production and service, this could be a plausible solution.

The JT8D has been used to re-engine the E-8 J-STARS aircraft!!--Petebutt (talk) 02:19, 23 February 2013 (UTC)
