With the relatively recent retirement of N720H (Honeywell) and N720PW (P&W), this is the last airworthy Boeing 720 in the world. It is seen here on final approach for runway 24R completing a 4 hour test flight with a PW150 engine mounted on the nose which powers Dash-8-Q400 aircraft.

Never thought I'd see the day a jetliner was pulled along by its nose! Unique plane and nice composition.

It would be awesome to log a few hours in such a unique aircraft...

I wonder if this aircraft could taxi under only the power of that turboprop.

I think that's what's meant by the term 'hybrid'!!

Can you imagine the heat and the noise inside that cockpit?>?

I've been looking at this picture for several minutes and I still have a problem with believing what I see. Pretty amazing to see this aircraft powered by a propeller. It looks really funny, but still beautiful. Great angle.

This aircraft isn't powered by the propeller. This is a test aircraft to test the prop engine. I've seen this aircraft in Longueuil, where I worked for P&WC.
