This magnificent piece of internal combustion art,has a soul.it is as romantic to view as is a beautiful woman.a picture of jet engine can never excite the soul of a man the way the flames eminating from thes power recovery turbines did,when i was a young man living under the main approach pattern to the then greater pgh airport.but most importantly,it reminds me of better times and better people.a time we will never know again.god bless those of you,who possess the same soul this beautiful engine possesses
