Do your engines hang low, do they wobble to and fro?

Sounds like somebody forgot this engine is bigger than the other 747 engines on the plane?

Isn't this the second incident of the test bed 747 in the last couple months? I was there not to long ago and thought they were doing an engine change due to ingestion of FOD or birds, or maybe a fuel truck or other vehicle hitting it.

Wonder if King County will make them pay for the sign.  headache 

On the other hand, great way for some impromptu FOD tests... Big grin
