Disregard of engine type,it is a well done engineering contraption in case of engine test in icy condition.

The first RAT In the world.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Mon July 2, 2012:
I guess that the winglike structure on top reduces the contraption's impact on the plane's weight distribution in flight, to improve flight characteristics.

A visitor from United States posted Fri July 1, 2011:
I believe this contraption was for engine testing for the Nord 262 project.

A visitor from United States posted Tue May 24, 2011:
Great shot of this grand old "Connie"; (however, a bit of "explanation" concerning the "contraption" on top would have been very helpful!)

Rare and nice to see it with Turbomeca Bastan high on him
