Engine is the rare P&W JT9D-70A (not a GE CF6 as some think!), the most powerful jet engine in the world at the time of its development (53,000 lbs of thrust) and first appeard on 703's sister-ship, N702SW back in May 1976. N702SW was the test-bed aircraft used for certification of these engines. It was developed with the 200F freighter in mind, and is instantly recognizable by it sleek profile and elliptical cowling.

Back in the day when the engine cowlings were polished not painted.

Great picture of this charismatic aircraft, with these reflections. I learnt something new today, indeed I would have thought that these were GE CF6s. The shape of the cowlings is very different from the 'normal' P&W JT9Ds. I miss the polished metal on planes very much!
