Can anyone tell me why engine nr.1 of a Boeing 707 is mounted to the wing
with a different kind of bracket then the other 3 engines ?

Thanks,

Fritsz.

The engine mounts basically do the same thing structurally but above the engine intakes are small inlets for cabin pressurisation and other air-driven supplementary systems. On some aircraft these are only fitted on engines 2, 3 and 4 (or engines 2 and 3 only on some 720Bs).

I'm sure there are tonnes of photos in the database that will support and / or undermine my point. Hope it helps.
