The BR715 has a smoking problem??? So that's what I saw when that 717 started up in GPT and all that White crap was coming from the back of the engine. I thought it was sand being kicked up from the construction site from the thrust of the engine, but it must have been smoke. Well, I guess it is Genetic huh. Like Parents, Like Children
