I’ve been watching a lot of Top Gear over the past few weeks. Sitting in the background of some shots is a 747. Cars and planes – fantastic!
In earlier episodes, it has no engines, which isn’t unusual. Turbofans are expensive and full of spare parts, so they’re often removed from decommissioned aircraft. In later episodes, the 747 suddenly sprouted engines – peculiar engines! Take a look at this clip, which has the boys towing all kinds of stuff around the airport, including the big plane.
