  2. Boeing 737? Most specifically, the Pratt and Whitney JT8D-1?

    Oooh. Close but no cigar! JT8 is a bit too old...

    I am going to guess the GE-90. Don't know much about them but the curve on the blades seems to match.

  5. Methinks the Rolls Royce GP-7200 turbofans of the Airbus A-380 (an image of mine here).
    Correction: The GP-7200 is by GE P&W - not RR (The RR Trent 900 is also available for the A-380)

    Oohhhh. Getting closer. GE certainly has a hand in this engine...

    Noooo - wrong manufacturer and way way too small to be one of those.
     
  7. OK :smile: (see a technical correction in my post above)

    Well corrected but, alas, your guess is still wrong... :biggrin:
     
  9. Smaller eh? Hmmm, what about the GE CFM-56 then? (a Snecma-GE effort)
