Look at the guy with his hand in the engine. Does he know what he is doing....? and the guy on the engine..

Any guesses which aircraft and what they might be doing ??

P.s. note the dead chicken on the ground.

It has to be a 747 judging by the ground clearance of the engine.

Number 4 Engine???

Methinks it could be Foreign Object Damage Inspection (FOD). Or something like that.

I don't see what's wrong. Clearing out a birdstrike....or maybe that's lunch. Either way, just because it's PIA that doesn't mean the engineers don't have a clue. I hope that's not what you are implying!

Don't birds know by now that flying into a turbofan is lethal?

What dead chicken? All I see is a pile of oily rags.

Looks like the early (or late) stages of a #4 engine change on a 747. The core and fan cowls are removed, as are many filler and access panels on the pylon. Looks like they just hung the nose cowl and the guy on top is attaching the anti-ice tubing.

Your subject title is rather dissapointing. Implying that aircraft technicians are uneducated neanderthals commiting one blunder after another is very irresponsible. You better hope Twotterwrench dosen't see this or you'll be in for a real earfull.

I'd say they know what they're doing. Looks like a job I did on 747s several years ago. There was a minor STC on several brackets in the pylon. Not an easy job! These brackets are stainless, which is not easy to form at all. The particular bracket I was responsible for would be the one the guy kneeling could reach. It was about 4 inches by 1 inch and was carded for 10 hrs. Took most of it too.  Smile
