    Mind you. Adding some fun and trouble in minds. There is also a GE with the side grille fitted at the bottom as well as an outlet (3rd picture) : https://www.qwant.com/?q=B-787 GE nex Engine&t=images

    You may notice that even the two RR shown are different (side grille position). What is also different : - the pylon which goes further front on the GE (or is the central part shorter on this engine ?). - the hot parts ahead of the cone.

    Short Jokes III - Worst in the Series

    How to start a loooong discussion : Out of the so many answers, this one gets my vote : So, you say he's wearing a belle? I bet they're happy together. *edit music references: Michelle, by the Beatles (Michelle, my belle) and the Turtles, "So Happy Together".

    Warthog Advice, Please?

    https://www.researchgate.net/publication/299955550_Air_Force_Academy_Contributions_to_Development_of_the_A-10_Drooped_Leading_Edge_Modification https://www.researchgate.net/publication/299955549_A-10_Wing_Leading_Edge_Effects_on_Engine_Stability_Part_1_-_Analysis_and_Evaluation_of_Wing_Leading_Edge_Configurations https://www.researchgate.net/publication/299958597_A-10_Wing_Leading_Edge_Effects_on_Engine_Stability_Part_2_-_Identifying_Total_Pressure_Distortion_Sources_and_the_Effects_on_EngineAirframe_Integration http://airvectors.net/ava10_1.html The engine position does have its liabilities. At high angles of attack, the wing can block airflow to the engines, and so a short leading-edge slat was installed between the fuselage and the main gear fairings, the slat opening automatically under hydraulic control at high angles of attack. The YA-10As uncovered the problem, and were fitted with fixed slot surfaces as an interim fix. Apparently the use of the leading-edge slats introduced another drawback in turn, in that it reduced indications to the pilot that the aircraft was going into a stall. A small strip was attached to the leading edge of each wing to ensure that the descent into a stall wasn't so abrupt.

    Airbus A300B4 question

    This is what Turbofan was looking for. Now, did A300B2 have a similar wing root or a sharp edge ? That was my question earlier. Few pictures of early A300 show the wing root, and unfortunately not as close as the one seen above) : http://www.airliners.net/photo/Air-Inter/Airbus-A300B2-1C/2611356/L https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/6748266 https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/185777 https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/181129 https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/181127 Note that A310 Krüger flap is different. By the way, does anyone have a clue to this (# 15) : Cheers. AV O

    Airbus A300B4 question

    In fact four, including the retracting leading edge folding part of the flap and the small slat section. Raw 2 and 20 of the selection below (with a 5 image/row display) : https://www.google.fr/search?q=A300-600+slats&client=safari&rls=en&dcr=0&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwikoeyahofZAhWLPFAKHTNUAbAQsAQIMA&biw=1449&bih=871#imgrc=lcC2wrN7uE0pNM: The curved or compound shape is visible at the wing root as is the small triangle coming out of the fuselage.
