Funny: My version of the 737 MAX and I do mean MAX

Tue May 28, 2019 7:48 pm

A 737 using the GE90 - 115b jet engine. You like being pulled back in your seat? You ain't seen nothing yet. :-)
Why endure the nightmare and congestion of LAX when BUR, LGB, ONT & SNA is so much easier to fly in and out of. Same with OAK & SJC when it comes to SFO.

If it were to be a freighter for transporting high density items such as car frames, metal beams, ore, etc. But you will need very high wings as the engine diameter is close to the diameter of the fuselage.

But this freight stuff usually rather belongs on trucks and ships. Also, I’m actually not sure, are there 737 MAX freighters?

And then I was thinking, what about a 737 unijet (one engine airplane)? I would be worried if the engine fails.

It would also be controlled by an XBOX controller. Will you crash? Who knows. Just hope the high speed wouldn’t dissipate the entire aircraft.

Previous generation of engines. If you want to be competitive, go with the GEnx or GE9x.
If you can walk away from it intact, it was a good landing!

Talk about serious FOD. Better hope the wings don't get sucked off the fuselage.

on other hand lift from root section tripled.

and i still thinking future planes will be with one big cruise engine and one for take-off and backup.

From the very beginning my idea of powering the 4th generation of the Image.737 aircraft was including GTF engine ( 737 FOUR ); four (4) Image.PW1600G, ‘2,5’-shaft, high-bypass, geared, turbofan engine (fan diameter: 56,0 in / 1.422,4 mm; BPR: 9,0:1, gear ratio: 2,409:1; eng. architecture: 1F-]G[-2LPC–8HPC〧2HPT–3LPT), OPR: 50,0:1, rated between 59,14 kN / 6.031 kgf / 13.295 lbf and 77,14 kN / 7.866 kgf / 17.342 lbf.
……
The Image.PW1600G, ‘2,5’-shaft, high-bypass, geared turbofan engine is a custom designed and specially tailored version of the small-core Pratt & Whitney.PW1000G GTF engine (previously known as the PurePower Geared Turbofan™), already applied on the Image.SpaceJet ( MRJ ) powered by P&W.PW1200G GTF engine and also predicted for the Image.E175-E2 ( ERJ190-500 ) aircraft, foreseen to be powered by P&W.PW1700G GTFs.

Those four engines would not bring a significant weight penalty to the aircraft, and in the same time these are more propulsive efficient engines in the comparison with the Image.LEAP-1B, twin-shaft, high-bypass turbofans (fan diameter: 69,4 in / 1.762,8 mm; BPR: 9,0:1; eng. architecture: 1F+3LPC–10HPC〧2HPT–5LPT), OPR: 43,68:1, rated between 119,15 kN / 12.150 kgf / 26.786 lbf and 130,41 kN / 13.298 kgf / 29.317 lbf. Besides, due to the noticeably smaller (23,9 %) fan diameter (69,4 in / 1.762,8 mm vs 56,0 in / 1.422,4 mm) those engines could be far easier placed on a much more appropriate place under the Boeing 737’s wings. The wings should probably need some modifications to deal with somewhat higher, but differently distributed weight of the two smaller and lighter GTFs...

I don't know, seems like it would be the next A340-300, aka a plane with 4 hairdryers :duck:
If you can walk away from it intact, it was a good landing!
