A Japanese film crew stands below a Pratt & Whitney test engine mounted to a stunted wing attached to the company's 747 test platform. The aircraft can test the characteristics of the new engine that will be installed in Mitsubishi aircraft coming onto the market. The 747 made a visit to Bradley International Airport to show the unusual engine configuration to the media and aircraft manufacturers.
