Title: CFM-56 Caravelle
Post by: CarlBagot on August 12, 2014, 11:12:20 PM


From wiki
"The engine flew for the first time in February 1977 when it replaced one of the four Pratt & Whitney JT8D engines on the McDonnell Douglas YC-15, an entrant in the Air Force's Advanced Medium STOL Transport (AMST) competition.[16] Soon after, the second CFM56 was mounted on a Sud Aviation Caravelle at the SNECMA flight test center in France. This engine had a slightly different configuration with a long bypass duct and mixed exhaust flow,[nb 1] rather than a short bypass duct with unmixed exhaust flow.[nb 2] It was the first to include a "Thrust Management System" to maintain engine trim."

Imagine having a CFM-56 caravelle in AWS  ;D (and 707, DC-8, Mercure too as that was in the plans hahaha)
