    Engine hush kit. A lot of those old kerosene burners have them to help muffle the noise.

    NASA could tell you, but then they'd have to kill you.

    The rear one is the real engine, but it's too small for the N number, so they kept the original engine to display the N number.

    Or maybe it's a super complicated sensor package to determine how an airfoil creates lift?

    It's the water heater. That flight between Houston and Tampa requires a lot of hot coffee.

    They were intrigued by the Raptor's approach of having one turbo feeding a second turbo...and they figured they'd try the same hack with their turbines.

    It’s like one of those wine bottle aerator things.
    Gives your jet exhaust the right blend of oaky notes, crisp elderflower, and ozone.

    Bunch of idiots on here.

    It's the new sustainable GE XP 980, with built-in ozone generator to help fix the big hole. The engine also runs on cooking grease. Just 4 million more of these babies and climate change will be a thing of the past.

    The main engine takes $100s and burns them for thrust, the second section gets rid of the remaining cents.

    We have them, though not on purpose. We've just never called them out as such before.

    But yeah, we should do this more often.

    The very rare in-flight washing machine with dryer attached. The spin cycle is a real treat. Gotta have two loads so you can put one on each side or the plane flies real out of wack.

    The front engine is electric. The thing on the back is a turbine-driven generator that makes electricity to power the front one.
