Gosh, what an amazing airframe and service life. Given the nacelles, are these high-bypass fans of some kind of new type? And why not go to conventional big fans?

@Tikka - Nah, wrong kinda engineer for that. Gramps was an aeronautical engineering professor and worked with Hill AFB on aircraft engines pre WW2 though and dad worked on F4s in the Navy. Came across it and found it interesting.

It's been a great plane. By contrast, the Boeing 747 came out 13 years later and has been discontinued. It's too hard to maintain and they quit making parts years ago.

RR bought out the Allison Division of GM some years ago. Likely as not, Allison might have a large part of these new engines. Allison is located in Indianapolis. A buddy of mine retired from there awhile back.

Economics killed the 747. Four engine airplanes are dead for commercial airplanes, they're too inefficient and two extra engines cost a lot of money. The Air Force doesn't really care about things like that since they just tax us to pay for it.

It looks like that engine is a variation of the ones that power the Gulfstream business jets and Boeing 717. They should be a big upgrade from the old ones.

Wikipedia says they're going to be built at RR's Indianapolis plant.

If I had to guess it’s because of the droop of the B-52 wings when fully loaded. I have friends that have flown the KC-135 with the big fans and they have to be VERY careful about landing with a slight angle of bank for fear of scraping an engine.

Boeing Outsourcing Nearly 700 U.S. Jobs to India While Raking in Taxpayer Money via Ukraine War Packages

The Boeing Company is outsourcing nearly 700 white-collar American finance and human relations jobs to Bengaluru, India while securing millions more in United States tax dollars through congressionally-approved spending packages to support Ukraine in its war with Russia.

Last month, reports confirmed that Boeing is laying off roughly 2,000 American employees doing financial and human resources (HR) work. Almost 700 of their jobs will be outsourced to India through the multinational corporation’s contract with Tata Consulting Services (TCS), an outsourcing firm based in India.

TCS is responsible for an outsourcing-offshoring business model that widens profit margins for corporations like Boeing by sending American jobs to lower-wage countries like India. Typically, the model begins with TCS importing foreign H-1B visa workers to replace American professionals. Eventually, the jobs are wholly offshored to a foreign country, mainly India.

Boeing reportedly had hundreds of its American employees train their foreign replacements employed at TCS before laying them off.
