RE: Emirate's 777 Engine Failure

Brilliant photos! I've never seen damage like that on a wide-chord fan engine. Looks like a fan blade separation caused the damage? The forces involved must have been tremendous, but the engine seems to have performed like it was designed to in that situation.

Good Stuff!

RE: The Most Powerful Engine.

The most powerful aircraft engine currently in service is Pratt & Whitney's PW4098 used on the 777-300. It is rated at 98,000lb thrust.

A side note:

GE will put its newest GE90, the GE90-115B, on test this year rated at 115,000lb thrust for the upcoming 777-300ER
