I'm hoping someone here can help me out with some questions about the engines of Nothwest's fleet. What are the engine types (PW, RR, etc...) for each of the aircraft listed below? Or if anyone knows where I can find this information, I would appreciate it. Thanks so much.
B747-200 = Sorry, couldn't find this one, but I'm guessing it's the Pratt & Whitney PW4056
-400 = Pratt & Whitney PW4056
DC-10-30 = GE CF6

About Pratt & Whitney Engines
The PW4000 family of engines reached a major milestone in December 2000, completing 50 million hours of service on seven different types of wide body aircraft with thrust requirements from 52,000 pounds to 98,000. The PW4168, developed expressly for the A330, has secured more than half of all engine orders for that aircraft against its two competitors. The PW2000 pioneered many of the innovations that today are used on almost all commercial engines such as digital electronic engine controls. The PW2000 military model, the F117, powers the U.S. Air Force C-17 strategic air lifter.
Edit: Next time please don't post the same thread in different forums, it saves time for those of us who actually researched the info. I learned I didn't need to find the info as ThePinnacleKid had already provided it. Thank you very much!
