Sure. What else would a Brit team use to power the rocket oxidiser pump? Rolls-Royce included a jet fuel pump with the EJ200 engine. After many delays, the Bloodhound SSC is scheduled for its first test runs October 28th at the Cornwall Newquay airport in England.

Yep, have been following this and actually saw the "vehicle" (well rocket) in Bristol on an open day - Beast of a thing! Anyway, if at all possible I'm hoping to get down to see a couple of the test runs - initial ones only for press and "invited guests", but there will be a chance for Jo Public to see some afterwards.
