PS: You actually don't even need an afterburner to shoot flames from your engine. All you have to do is become an MD-11 with a serious problem:

I have seen the hot red glow in the CFM-56!! Also when taxiing the 737, if you look right up the exhaust so can see the last stage/ exit guide vanes glwing red hot!! Maybe someone can snap a good photo for the database.

Please explain to me how a FADEC controlled CF6 installed on an MD11, on takeoff, can produce that well defined flame

Any Idea on the MD-11 Snag
Referring to our discussion in an earlier thread, Mel, that would be an incident, not a snag, as that engine would probably have to be shut down.
|Quoting AirWillie6475 (Thread starter):|
Why is it that when you look at an engine from the back when the plane is taking off, there is no fire or flames like in the fighter jet engines? With all that combustion in the engines why don't we see any flames or redness at the back, how is it just black?
|Quoting Broke (Reply 21):|
Turbine engines are designed to contain the flame in the combustion section of the engine. If the flame were to reach the turbine, it would quickly damaged the turbine vanes.
