I am wondering if anyone can answer this question. I flew Air France back in 1993, CGD - LAX and LAX - CDG. I SWEAR they had Rolls-Royce RB211 engines, but I keep hearing that AF's planes are GE-powered. I recognise the RB211 on the wing because of its distinctive nacelle and pointed spinner. GE engines have a fat nacelle with a tapered exhaust.
Anyone know if AF did indeed operate RR-powered 744s? Thanks!

Air France keeps there pilots really close to my pilot supply store. They are always in my store so one day I will ask them that and then we can have the truth from the people that know. I should be able to get them by Sunday, I had a AF FO in my store about 3 hours ago.
