Photo is a cool shot, but very deceptive. She is a whole lot further away than the engine, so the size comparison is not valid. Still, its a very cool image.

She's a distance away walking toward the aircraft, and engine is much closer actually. Wonder how big this engine is compared to a T7 type engine though, anyone know? Great pic here!!

That is one large engine, indeed.
116 inch in fan diameter.
I see jealousy in some comments!

It is a fantastic picture. Although taken from far away....it is so clear. Everything is so in lign. It is realistic. And no not that far away from the engine...Maximum 5 meters. It is an impressive beast!

I really like the dimensions, the lady walking on the side is not some top model, just a very pretty lady, she looks pretty common... I think the size of the reactor is just great, it's a beauty in design. Thanks!!!!

Not a size comparison at all, she is too far away (farther then 5 meters)
if she is the same distance then she is 2 feet 4 inches tall lol

Indeed not a size comparison at all -if it would be, the lady would fit in nearly 3 times which would make the engine at least some 4.5 meters in diameter, while the biggest engine on earth can fit a person more or less twice, the GE90(-115B & -110B1L), at 1 mm shy of 3.43 meters cowling diameter, fanblades 3.20+ m. So not jealousy at all either, and still the Trent 900 (from the comment saying it is 116 inches: times 2.5 (correct factor?) that gives a diameter of 2.6m+)is a huge but most of all great and complex engine, a technological marvel...
