This is a "coke wash" cleaning of a DC-10 engine in progress. Running the engine at idle, a technician will direct a spray of mild abrasive into the engine to clean off deposits that can cause high heat (EGT). Note the technician is tied to a tug for safety.

My question: "coke wash" cleaning still in progress anywhere today? I never see anything like this before.

Hey 9-11, A while ago there was a very interesting thread by Mr. Spaceman regarding coke washes, here's the link.

Still very interesting thing though, I hope the convorsations continue about it!
