An unmistakable aircraft in the air. It sounded like no other.
i experienced an accident in 80'while flying over the horn of africa.the 2th pilot playing a crossfeed,mistakely closed fuel to the left engine,thus starting a three-axis change on flight path.speed and fl 150.the aircraft performed very nice,so i can notice you today.

I am doing a report on this engine and was curious if you happen to know the total oil quantity, total compression per stage and the N1 and N2 operating RPMs. Also if there is a link to a picture of the engine itself.
If so I would greatly appreciate this information.
Do you have any comments about this aircraft ?
