Updates on the campaign to rescue and relocate two Boeing 737-200 in Perth Western Australia

Sunday, October 22, 2017

The JT8D-15A is an axial flow front turbofan engine having a 13 stage split compressor, a nine can (can−annular) combustion chamber and a split four stage reaction−impulse turbine.
The engine is equipped with a full length annular fan discharge duct. Producing 15,500 lbs (7,030 Kg) of thrust each, making them capable of lifting 52 Tonnes of 737 into the air, with lots of noise and smoke.

Over 6m long, this is going to look impressive on the back of a truck!

Three more to go...
