There is no need to fear Qantas Jet is here!

This is just QANTAS 'redundancy option' given all their engine issues...

What a rare photo these days!

To visitor from Holland: Boeing envisaged this opportunity from the earliest models of B747 for exactly this kind of situations. I believe it was the request of PanAm who have always been very concerned about servicing their airplanes in remote airports.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe there's another pod like that on the opposite side, so Jumbos can fly with six engines (the extra ones are not operational of course).

A visitor from Canada posted Tue July 26, 2011:
I remember seeing those 'pods' on DC-8's but back then they put an aerodynamic cone cover to reduce drag on those old very low bypass P&W and RR Conways. I guess now with high bypass fans, the drag is not as bad.

Help is on the way! :)

A visitor from United States posted Tue July 26, 2011:
So cool, I've never seen anything like that before!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Tue July 26, 2011:
Nice capture. Did Boeing create a 5th engine spot on purpose for ferrying reasons? Or is this just custom made by the airlines themselves?

A visitor from Netherlands posted Tue July 26, 2011:
Very rare picture. Nice!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Tue July 26, 2011:
Long time no see for an engine ferrying in modern times.
