The retired pilots used to drop by the Legion Branch 147 in St. Bruno once and a while to discuss all things aircraft. We used to joke about the old engines on the bird and they would retort that it cost $10 / yard to put all that black smoke behind her!

Dark on the background but the engine is interesting.

I had heard about this aircraft, but until now had never seen a photo of it - yes, it sure does look like Pinocchio - with a propeller though...

Great to see this aircraft again. It used to come to Stansted ( UK ) regularly for maintenance, the P & W reps who came with it were well known and very well liked.

I'm happy to be able to say that I've already been in this plane and to say that my father worked on this plane!

WOW... The engine in all its glory... Great detail shown in picture... might set it up as my desktop wallpaper.

Is that a propeller or is it a giant egg beater?

Strangest looking thing I've ever seen!

The reengine-ning process of the 720-fleet is slowly taking progress ^^

Kinda tells You just how robust the 720's aerodynamics are ... able to take such a punch into the face ... and still fly
