Trivia on the GE90-115B
The GE90-115B, the world's most powerful turbofan engine, is the exclusive powerplant for Boeing's longer-range 777-300ER and -200LR twinjets. During its initial ground tests, a GE90 engine achieved unprecedented power for a jet engine, reaching 122,965 pounds of thrust. However, In late 2002, the GE90-115B broke its original record by reaching 127,900 pounds of thrust during final certification testing. The new record was set while completing a required U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) 150-hour block test. During this intensive test, the engine ran for approximately 60 hours at triple red-line conditions (maximum fan speed, maximum core speed and maximum exhaust gas temperature) to evaluate the engine at its operational limits.
