    As most of us actually fly whether cessna's or concordes, I think we should have a little competition. Here is how it will work:

    The first poster will create a question about a certain aircraft, at any difficulty level, the next poster will answer the question if correct he in turn goes and posts the next question. Simple, right?
    We will count/tally correct answers as points.Points are given by the person who first posted the question on a scale of 0-5.

    The point caste system
    0-What are you talking about?
    1-Check your math
    2-Better luck next time!
    3-You on the right track.
    4-you almost got it!
    5-Wow, you know your stuff!

    Hopefully this won't get six replies and then sent to the bottom f the list, lets keep it alive.

    Lemme see. Please name all the engine variants fitted to any and all types of Boeing 727 ?

    4 points for getting the engines and their thrusts.
    1 extra point if you can recall to which 727 variant they were fitted

      I love the idea, but I think this question may be a bit too difficult to start out with. I only know of one person on JP.net who flies the 727 and I'd actually say that a majority of the people here are not pilots. I still love the idea though, and when you have a question that I can answer I'll sure to do just that and then come up with a good one myself.

                  I'll go first
                  The Rolls-Royce RB 211, found on the 757, is also used as the powerplant to what US Military aircraft?

                          No, that would be the PW2000.

                            No the C17 uses F117-PW-100 and the commercial series is the PW2040. You should of asked the equivalent, the C32 is to easy
