    Well it's a start, but you have alot to learn.

    I'm drawing blanks on this one. First thought was a Canberra, but that sits a bit higher.
    ...and it typically uses both engines at the same time.

      The two engines (which are not used at the same time) are used for distinctly different phases of the journey.

        Very specific, yes.

        Versatile, yes.

        Bird? Sometimes.

                  The two engines both provide propulsion. But why have two engines & not use them both at the same time? If they're used for different phases of the journey one phase is obviously flight, whats the other?

                  • OK...so the other phase has to be movement on the ground....which means either a smaller engine for taxiing thrust or one or more driven wheels.....

                    .....but I just can't find the search words for it !!
                    If it 'ain't broken........ Don't try to mend it !

                              • That's a good one Brian, really reminds me something but what... guess I'm getting very old...

                                And It's far from being a P-51 Boeing King...
