Interesting thing is the 787 is the only aircraft in the world where 2 engines have a single interface. Thereby allowing the aircraft to be fitted with either the Rolls Royce Trent 1000 or the General Electric GEnx engines at any given time.
I did not know that . . . I know you can order most of the newer airliners with your choice of engines (Rolls-Royce, P&W, GE, etc.), especially the 57, 67 77, but I just assumed it wasn't a big deal which engine you chose. Wrong!
And, yes, the fuselage is of all-composite construction, so that's why it looks like it's plastic - because it is!
Good pic, starting to look good.
And bomber why would the engines not work? Because its not a European aircraft.......?
What do you mean with interchange engines? Is what I understand that you can have a plane with for example a GE in one side and a RR in the other?
