How to transport a spare engine 747 style .. a 5th pod fitted inboard of the Number 2 engine. Notice the engine in the 5th pod has a special aerodynamic covering over the core inlet to direct air through the bypass.

Mark H, that's correct... Operated up to SIN as QF31 with the spare for QF6.

This is your captain speaking: Due to recent engine issues, we added an extra one for passenger safety! Ok, joke aside, I wonder why didn't they load it into a cargo instead of adding some extra drag and yaw moment on this 747.

Is that engine heading to Singapore to replace the engine that had the contained failure on the 747 operating QF6?

EXIF stands for Exchangeable Image File Format. It was developed by the Japanese Electronics Industry Development Association (JEIDA) in an effort to simplify and standardize the exchange of data between imaging devices and software. Exif is a variation of JPEG, used by almost all digital cameras to record extra interchange information to image files as they are taken. The type of information stored in a file varies by camera model, but it can include such things as date and time a photo was taken, resolution, camera settings used for the shot, amount of compression applied, color information, whether or not the flash was fired, shutter speed, name of the camera owner, and so on.

Most photo manipulation software released after 2001 supports the reading of Exif information, however, if you want to ensure that the information is retained within your picture files, you must use software that supports Exif. The Exif information is lost if you save a picture in a program that doesn't support it. There is also specialized software specifically for extracting and editing Exif data.

Please be aware that, while most photos displayed on JetPhotos.Net contain EXIF information, some do not.
