Subject line says it all.

Any photos of the GEnx engine installed on the 747 test plane?

All I could find were the first flight videos...

4 of those bad boys on the wings will certainly make an adjustment to the current profile of the 747.....won't it?
Is my Pan Am ticket to the moon still good?

Nice video clip but doesn't look as impressive as the big GE-90 on the 747. I do like the "jagged edge" rear cowling though. See the shine on that old classic at the end when the crew got off? Beautiful.
After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

Yes still looks pretty good at age 37. The 25th 747 built, delivered to Pan Am March 1970.
