A four engined aircraft has engines numbered one to four. Could someone tell me which engine is number one, number two etc as viewed from outside the aircraft.

I assume they are numbered left to right when facing the front, if you see what I mean, and hope someone can either confirm this or put me right.

Thanks

Hi, They are from right to left when standing in front. So 4,3,2,1 from the front looking back at the plane.

I always remembered that on a DC 10/ MD 11, the tail engine was #2.

Anyone? Anyone? Buhler?  rotfl  (sorry, couldn't resist!)

My glass is neither 1/2 empty nor 1/2 full, rather, the glass itself is twice as big as it should be.

One of the guidelines used for aircraft is things must appear and operate in logical order and in the direction the equipment works in. From the captains seat items are numbered sequentially from left to right and from front to back. Gear handle goes up to raise gear, down to lower. Flap handle moves back to lower flaps and forward to raise them. Turn the control yoke to the left to make the plane go left, etc.
