RR also has a 747 testbed, currently registered N787RR. It is based in Waco, Texas and is being used to test the Trent 1000 for the 787.

TSTC, or CNW if you prefer...if you go there, you'll possibly see the new PrivatAir B763 that just went there last week.
|Quoting Cancidas (Thread starter):|
does anyone know the registrations of the major tesbed aircraft? GE has N747GE, raytheon N289MT. i'm sure there are others, can anyone help me out?
|Quoting Cf6ppe (Reply 8):|
A highly modified B-17 aircraft was used as the testbed for the PW T-34 turboprop engine. The cockpit area was moved rearward and the test engine was fitted on the front of the fuselage. The T-34 engine @ 5-6000 hp could easily haul the B-17 with the regular four Curtiss Wright R-1820 engines feathered.
