Remark Photographer
G-VFOX (cn 449) Visiting Zurich for the "Get Well" programme. I've already seen a lot of engines in this position, but those red Trent 500 just beat everything you can imagine in matter of size. The nose cowl has been taken off for inspection giving a lovely view on those amazing shaped fan blades

Love Rolls Royce, Can't go wrong with them!

A visitor from Jordan posted Sat July 3, 2010:
See how close the slat gets to the cowling of the #1 Engine, there a few aircraft (747 among them) where you should never drop the slats with the cowls open or you will find some dents later on :).

What a wing-span!

Beautiful shot! The image of those sparkling 'Virgin' Trents refreshes me. :) Hope Sir Richard Branson sets up Virgin India Airways soon! ;) -Sreenath Yellamrazu.

A visitor from Germany posted Thu April 26, 2007:
AH! RR Trent 500s... the Trent is probably the best engine series to date! So flexible that it can fly on almost any airframe and so efficient that others give huge discounts to beat them... this picture shows why they are every reasonable engineers choice! 5*

A visitor from Singapore posted Tue April 10, 2007:
It's amazing to see how clean and detailed these RR Trent engines are good job !!

A visitor from Germany posted Sun September 17, 2006:

A visitor from Spain posted Sat September 16, 2006:
