No.2 Engine Paint Scheme

Post by speedbird london » Mon Oct 31, 2005 2:20 pm

The reason for the forward section of the engine is simple, the area that is grey, is known as the nose cowl/intake, this is bolted to the fan case of the engine. For some reason this particular engine nose cowl needed to be changed, and the replacement available was painted grey. Im sure PIA engineering or who ever is responsible for aircraft appearance will get the nose cowl painted to scheme. I hope this answers your Question. Sorry for detail.
