That's Honeywells flying engine test rig so what you're seeing is an engine mount.

NO, THEY FLIGHT TEST PLASTIC MODELS OF ENGINES, TO SEE IF THE PUBLIC THINK THEY LOOK GOOD!!!

Stop YELLING, please.

Of course they test real engines. Check out what Honewell sells and you'll probably get an idea of what they're testing.
