  • Guinness world records 2008 screw up

    i was at my local library today and waiting for my turn on a computer i decided to look at the GWR book, i came across this engine thrust record, the pic speaks for itself, sorry for the blurry pic, only had my phone, u can still read it





    wow! i never knew GE90s had ABs!

    yes i am a boeing fan, and i know thats a airbus, haha

    A GE-90 with Afterburner, now that opens quite a few options - JFK-LHR in 3 hours, eat your heart out Airbus .

        The GE website says that it reached a max thrust of 127,900lbs of thrust.

            The trouble with the Guinness people is that, while they generally get the facts right, they have a bad habit of using unrelated pictures. In this case with the GE90 record (which is text printed correctly) they've gone down the route of "a jet engine today, any one will do for a picture"

            Clearly a case of the production team sampling too much of the the sponsor's product possibly ?

            ....and can you imagine the photo possibilities of a 777 on a full reheat takeoff out of Heathrow ? And the noise abatement, emissions treehuggers would have a blue fit !!
            If it 'ain't broken........ Don't try to mend it !

              Especially if they were placed right behind the 777's afterburners .
