I am curious,

What of you may ask...

Well this:

I have noticed twice within a week an unusual layout for airliner engines. The first time was when I saw casion royale last week. The two engines under the wing of a fictional passanger jet were linked together looking like the pairs which are fitted under the wing of a B-52.

Now I just thought that it was an artistic licence with no real basis. However i was on the VW website and noticed this:


First of all its quite impressive. But then I noticed the engine layout again.

What is this? I am really curious.

from the article :

The result was an ex-British Airways Boeing 747-200 weighing 155 tonnes. The aircraft, first flown in 1980 and retired last year retains its full complement of 500 seats, 11 toilets and complete landing gear, albeit without an operating braking system. The original engines were removed last year to make way for dummy items used in the filming of a recent motion picture. Despite this, the aircraft still weighs 155 tonnes, due in part to the 28 tonnes of water held on board in the fuel and nose tanks.

it looks the same , because it is the prop plane from the movie
