This is an odd one..

Passenger Airliner engines have always been forward of the wing. I remember the engine being under the wing.


It doesn't matter what kind of airliner or the age - they all look like this.. Go ahead a look a few up!

I can't find any 'residue' pictures of what I remember - yet..

..I remember the engine being directly under the wing, and I've flown commercial many times over many years and was in the AF. It seems like weight distribution would be off with them being so far forward.


Aviation experts and enthusiasts on ATS can confirm the engine has always been forward of the wing..

I remember the engine being under the wing..

What do you remember?

I think that you have a terrible memory.

Always been where they are for me....obviously it will appear very different while sitting in the plane, but the pics you provided don't appear to be out of the ordinary from my experience....

Maybe you are thinking of the DeHavilland Comet. The engines were not in front of the wings on that one.

If they were mounted any further back how could the flaps work?

Just no.

This Mandela effect thing has turned otherwise thinking people into people incapable of discerning reality.

The engines have never been under the wing, except as they are. It's aerodynamically impossible to have the entire engine under the wing like you claim to remember. I don't care what universe you want to claim to be from, the engine intakes have to be forward of the wing.

Ive flown alot as well and always request a window seat.
I remember them always sticking out just slightly, nowhere near to the degree they are in those pics

Being a clerk in the Air Force doesn't confer some sort of knowledge about aerodynamics. (Clearly)

The Me 262 had air intakes that were in front of the leading edge of the wing. It's always been that way. Just because you have an incorrect memory doesn't mean we've all shifted into an alternate universe.

I know people that have spent 10 or 15 years in the Air Force that can barely identify a C-130, and can't tell the difference between a C-17 and C-5. People seem to think that being in the military suddenly makes you an expert at something if it's related to whatever branch you're in.

Fascinating. I remember you saying the exact opposite in my earlier dimension today.

That's giving it too much credit.

Have people EVER been able to discern reality??

Perhaps you're referring to something like this:

Military aircraft mount accessories (bombs?) under the wings-
and in some video games, the engines are under the wings.

Or at least they used to be. Modern games probably pay more attention.


Basically, human memory sucks and now people are trying to blame it on this mandella thing

Here we are:

Podded Engines

This Wiki entry explains why the engines are mounted ahead of the wing.

Honestly, can this Mandela Effect crap possibly get any crappier?

The OP said under not entirely like this.

I'm not an aeronautical engineer or anything but I can search engine with the best of them. I think what you perceiving is the difference in configurations in popular planes like the the 737 due to differences in the engines between variants.

The 737-200 had the engines like this:



The 737-300 and 737-400 like this:



I think the newer engines are just shorter. They've always stuck out in front of the wing (I think they'd have to).

Same here - I remember the engine protruding slightly from the front of the wing as viewed from the window seat.


Here's what they look like now..
..and they've always looked like this:

Designs/shapes/sizes of things change over a period of years. Who'd have thought it?
