Hear the mighty engines roar ..

I got up early in Chengdu and via Shanghai, came back to Japan tonight. As it was last travel of 6 times during these 4 years because the project will finish in this autumn. So it was most impressive visit, though what I have done on the job was least.


From Shanghai to Tokyo on JAL I took window seat again, where was nicest place to enjoy these engine. This beautiful package produces incredible power, rotating turbo fans in incredible speed. A man loves a mighty engine, indeed.


The song of the engine becomes most charming when it has finished taking off and while ascending in sharp angle. It turns from noisy roar to light rhythmical humming.


Do you remember, oh friends in the same or higher generation, the song from which the phrase of this pic comes? A mighty engine, if I am not the powerful one like that, it just takes my love away, and I just am left stuck on the ground.
