Heh DC10Tony... you don't do much better by saying he's trashing a "plane that's superior".
I think another detail that's important that's being missed is increasing the total fan blade area without widening the engine too much. It was important to ensure it was still transportable without an AN-225 or a Beluga.

Interesting to see the blades, but I thought that they were also interested in the 'cookie cutter' trailing edges of the cowling, or was that only Rolls Royce?
As for HKGSpotters comment, I don't really think it is neccessary for you to jump all over him like that. Calling someone a troll is not really very nice at all, and just what are you saying about plane spotting? It's my favorite hobby as well, and from what I gather from your post you don't think much of it. That's fine but no need to be rude.
