In the early 80's Eastern had a deal to buy two ex-Qantas 747-238 if they won the MIA-LHR route they was biding for. Pan AM won the route and Eastern did not buy the 747's. These were Qantas early Pratt power 747-238. I under stand early Qantas 747-238 had water injection. So my question is did Eastern nearly buy 747 with water injection engines?
PS: These are not the three 747-121 they least from Pan Am in the early 70's
