Boeng 7X7 compilation at KBFI

My good friend Roy McMillion has a very nice compilation of photos from the 07.07.07 gathering of all 7-Series aircraft ever produced by Boeing at KBFI, Boeing Field.  Here is one from his collection that I found  interesting.  Do you see what I see?

    Thats looks spooky! But most of the engine management functions are quite similar (if not the same) across the 7×7 family which largely use the CFMI engines. Looks like a CFM56 series, which are very popular on the 73x\’s and even on the Airbuses (321\’s and 340\’s).

    That\’s the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 testbed aircraft, with the trent hanging off the #2 pylon.

    They are testing them already? I thought the rolls royces werent available till 2010… will the 78\’s get the rolls engines?
