Tri Jet Production

Tue May 15, 2018 10:20 am

Would anyone have a link to a video of the production of a tri jet? I'm very interested in the installation of the middle engine utilizing the S-duct?

This is a sped up video of one on the 727. There are attach points on the tail for hoisting the engine, pretty cool seeing it done in person. https://youtu.be/jbVX45lEK2Y?t=8m11s

Well, at least they didn't do it like American did with a fork lift.

We used a forklift on B727 engines all the time. Not an issue.

Sorry I was referring to the AA, DC10 accident at ORD where they used an unauthorized procedure to hang the engine with a fork lift.

I know what you were referring to, but that’s apples to broccoli. The AA (and Continental) procedures removed the engine and pylon as an assembly.

At PanAm we used a forklift to pull B727 & B747 engines.

Center engine changes were pretty simple on the B727. Access to the firewall connections were ridiculously easy as compared to the side engines.

Never changed a #2 on an L-1011, so I can’t really comment on it.
