    THIS is really fascinating stuff man, just excellent! Thanks for the

    Just researched that it was an intermediate pressure turbine disc
    failure,but surely the engine design should be such that fragments are
    contained within the engine environment…

    No chance of a blade escaping??…The words of a test engineer,but isn’t
    that what happened on an A380 engine failure.Your high standards are

    Still the greatest. Long live RR!

    I worked on the fan blades and then moved over to the design of the big
    structures built at Ansty. This is a pretty well produced documentary
    explaining what goes into the R-R engines: how to build a jumbo jet engine

    Good video.

    Someone is watching too much channel 10 news. Uneducated and socially inept

    What’s a Jimbo jet?

    What is more efficient an engine then a fanjet?Hydrogen powered?

    as it can. As it’s done so the Dreamliner is far over due, far over budget,
    and still technical problems arise. Boeing has contracted vital aircraft
    parts to numerous foreign contractors, most of whom either have never made
    aircraft parts or haven’t since WW2. Not simply the production of these
    parts but the engineering as well, many of the delays are owed to these
    companies designs being chronically late or inadequate for their purpose.
    Many times parts contractors, contract other contractors,

    It’s interesting to watch this from the puget sound. In so many ways this
    area’s relationship with Boeing mirrors that of Rolls Royce to Darby.
    Almost everyone here knows someone who works or has worked at Boeing. But
    where RR seems to be committed to it’s roots there Boeing isn’t & I think
    it shows. Each year it seems now Boeing is less and less well liked. Where
    Rolls seems to find success focusing on the development & production of
    engines and the like. Boeing has not, contracting out as much

    A micrometre (or micrometer; from Greek μικρόν mikrón, meaning “small”) is
    1×10−6 of a metre (SI Standard prefix “micro” = 10−6); that is,
    one-millionth of a metre. And real engineers use metric system you idiot!

  20. Gerry Hiles23 January, 2013 at 12:21 pm

    This video is wasted on you and most viewing it, who have NO IDEA about
    engineering precision down to microns. Have you any idea what 0.0001″
    means, or the metric equivalent, or even finer tolerances of fit?

    Oh yeah? Ask the passengers and crew of Qantas Flight 32. I bet they would
    have rather had the GE EnGen powering the A380 than the RR bomb that nearly
    killed them all.

    27:54 I like Steve’s enthusiasm for perfection, and his joyfulness. This,
    more than anything, shows how human emotion, not the absence of it, is at
    the core of anything that is made with such amazing precision and strength.
    In fact, what’s more fascinating to me than the engine is the genuine
    integrity of all of the people in this documentary, and how much pleasure
    this kind of work brings them. I doubt there’s a better way to live. Maybe
    different, but not better.

    Bababooey phooey… You have your info SCREWED UP!! Must be that mental
    problem you have..have a nice day..

    Avionics are significantly more complex….
