Checking the Engines

Looking at the engines from the forward section of the plane. These are the two of the Boeing 747-400's GE CF6-80C2 engines. Each of these engines has as much as 60,000 pounds of thrust. As an additional information, the Boeing 747-400 takes off at speeds of almost 300km/h, cruises at approximately 900 km/h and lands at 260 km/h.
