  1. P3d looks better everyday. Feels like you're really there. Beautiful shot. What aircraft were you flying? (Just curious.)

I'm not sure if the engine data that I posted in my last post was incredibally accurate. Like I said, all I know is that I found it in an old Virgin Atlantic 747-400 manual, so, I guess the engine's not GE.Sorry I couldn't help :-(Connor Levens

I dug up this information from a few old 747-400 books that a friend of mine gave me a while back. According to the booklet cover, the chart seems to be good for Virgin Atlantic, and, as we all know, Virgin Atlantic operates their 747-400 in GE engines, so I'm guessing this chart is good for GE.Connor Levens
