Does anyone have the story behind this?

Also, would a 767 engine fit into a freighter like a well, 767, 757, A300, DC10/MD-11? I take it that's how the have to get it in and the old busted one out right?

Interesting catch, Chris!

I bet HAL "borrowed" an engine from UAL's engine shop and they just sent it down 101 on a truck.

Unlikely unless UA has GE CF6-80A2 engines. N598HA is one of the 4 ex-DL ships that HA purchased a few years back and are powered by the CF6-80A2 engines unlike the rest of the HA 767s that are powered by PW4060s.

Cool pic though. When was it taken? Because ironically for me, I just flew N598HA as HA10 HNL-LAX yesterday.

Is it possible for a twin to take a 3rd engine under its wing for transport purposes, like a 747 takes a 5th?
Can an A340 or an A380 take a fifth, come to think of it........

Ecuadorian MD11.

No, No and No!
Only a few B744 are able to take a fifth engine, Qantas is one operator with the mod.
But no twins, or newer aircraft can. It just isn't worth carrying around the weight of the installation for the few times it id required.

If they didn't get a new engine by truck or rail/truck, then I would think a safe bet is the FX MD10 that usually shows up in SJC. I have seen a single engine come in on a 747-200F before which leaves ALOT of unused space at first though. But it was coming in for some rigorous wind tunnel test at Arnold AFB here in Middle Tennessee. With that engine came a bunch of other pieces of equipment in support of that engine. Of course, that still didn't come close to filling up that airplane but you know, it wasn't my engine and it wasn't my money so who am I to question the use of a 747. LOL!!

Thursday evening the 27th. Looks like they got it repaired if you flew it yesterday.  Smile

If a 747 brought it in I'm sorry I missed it but, since it's such a rare event to have a 747 at SJC someone probably would have posted something about it. Or at least it's happened in the past with the NW 744's in April.
