Did 727s have no R/T on the #2 engine?
|Quoting Northwest727 (Reply 1):|
The only trijets I know of that do not have reverse thrust on the #2 engine are the Dassault Falcon 50/900/7X and the Tupolev Tu-154
What is Tay?
|Quoting Chamonix (Reply 9):|
Tay must be a river following RR nomenclature.
Only RB (Barnoldswick) and Merlin were the exceptions - hazarding a guess.
|Quoting Chamonix (Reply 11):|
Would that be a 727-ADV (Advanced)?
|Quoting 26point2 (Reply 3):|
This is wrong, it's the other way around..... Dassault Falcon 50/900 ONLY has T/R on #2 engine. No T/R on #s 1 & 3.
|Quoting KPWMSpotter (Reply 4):|
From what I recall, the Falcon 50/900/7X are actually quite the opposite, they have reverse thrust *only* on the #2, while the #1 and 3 lack reversers. The center bucket reverser on the 900 produces a very distinctive wheezing/coughing/backfiring sound on the 900s when it's activated. You're right about the Tu-154 though, just a straight pipe there.
|Quoting jetlagged (Reply 13):|
RR turbine engines have a model number and a river name, though the RB211 never got named for some reason. The Tay, for example, had the model number RB183.
|Quoting FlyMKG (Reply 14):|
We have another -200 with the Dugan Quiet Wing and JT8D-9s that still has the #2 reverser. The -9 equiped airplane used to have -15s in a previous life so it could just be a matter of which engines are on the frame.
