Take a look at the engines and the fins on both a/c...
Here is my question:
On the 737s, there is one fin on the inboard engine cowling. I can understand why there is one and how it behaves if the engine falls off inflight. I know the fin helps force the engine to 'fly' away from the aircraft if it falls off. I worked at AS and I know how the engine would perform if it were to fall off.
Now what about the D10? I notice that each engine on both sides of the engine cowlings has two. Why two? Whats the reason for it and how does it 'behave' of the engine falls off inflight? Also why doesn't the tail engine have any fins?
Thanks in advance!
