GE90 Fan Blade Donated To Cincinnati Art Museum

If you are in the area:

GE Aviation recently donated a GE90-115B Fan Blade to the Cincinnati Art Museum. From Dec. 18 to March 16, the fan blade will be on display in the museum's gallery 126, located at 953 Eden Park Drive, Cincinnati, Ohio. Museum is open Tuesdays through Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Admission to the museum is free.

The Jet Engine Fan Blade (2001) is not the work of an artist, but the creation of GE Aviation engineers whose focus was functionality rather than aesthetics. Yet, it stands alone as a beautiful work of design, its titanium-tipped black composite body and unique curved design are arguably compelling as a work of art. The four-foot long fan blade is from the GE90-115B engine, the world's largest and most powerful engine. Unprecedented in size, the GE90 front fan blade is the only composite fan blade in commercial aviation use.

There is also a GE90-115B blade on display at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City.

If only it were the same for the hp turbine blades. It is a very nice looking blade though, the black with silver L/E looks lovely.

I was just there a few weeks ago and it wasn't on display. I'm not sure if they've "put it away" for a special exhibit, or if it's gone, but it certainly wasn't visable. I've seen it there before, I think it was on the 2nd floor in the architecture/design area.

Is that scraped, as in touched something, or scrapped as in written off?

Scrapped, as in written off. Plenty more scrapes than that.
