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.

Hope it was not plucked from a windmill!

A visitor from Canada posted Fri March 18, 2011:
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!

A visitor from France posted Fri March 18, 2011:
WOW... The engine in all its glory... Great detail shown in picture... might set it up as my desktop wallpaper.

A visitor from United States posted Wed January 19, 2011:
Is that a propeller or is it a giant egg beater?

Strangest looking thing I've ever seen!

A visitor from United States posted Sun August 15, 2010:
Sweet!!!! Why didn't I think of that!?!?!? LOL 5 Stars!

A visitor from Canada posted Tue June 22, 2010:
Lol, it would too be cool, if all planes should have this (engine) mod... even the big ones. its a first for me. great shot... oh, and 5ive stars (*****, and a half)

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

A visitor from Germany posted Wed May 19, 2010:
Kinda tells You just how robust the 720's aerodynamics are ... able to take such a punch into the face ... and still fly

A visitor from United States posted Wed May 5, 2010:
Crazy! Four burnin' and one turnin'.

A visitor from - posted Wed May 5, 2010:
A tail wheel endorsement id probably required for this. lol

A visitor from - posted Mon March 22, 2010:
I would guess a mix of ILS and luck

A visitor from - posted Mon November 30, 2009:
How are the pilots supposed to see the runway on final?

A visitor from Canada posted Tue June 24, 2008:
That is just the weirdest looking plane i have ever seen.
