Engine Pylon Construction
Posted: Mon Jan 24, 2005 8:39 am
Everytime I fly or look at an airliner, I can't help but notice how puny the engine pylons look in comparison to how much force is exerted on them. Does anyone have a webpage or more info about what these look like inside and what materials are used to construct them and how they are attached to the airplane and engines? I would assume that all the fuel, heater, and other lines run through there too. They obviously are more beefy than they appear, but I'm just curious...thanks!!
