The Engine Test Cell Facility, commonly referred to as the “Hush House,” is a multi-function building used to perform diagnostic, troubleshooting and follow-on maintenance testing on uninstalled engines and high powered installed engine testing while the engine is in the F-16 aircraft.

The General Electric F110-GE-100 turbofan produces close to 29,000 pounds of static thrust in afterburner, which can propel the Fighting Falcon to approximately twice the speed of sound.
