The tail engine on the DC-10 (and MD-11) is also pitched, quite likely for the
same reason(s) as the DC-9.  That has me wondering about the L-1011; the engine
is mounted inside the fuselage, so it is difficult to tell if it is pitched
from horizontal.  Does anyone know if it is?  And, if it isn't, why would the
L-1011 NOT have the pitched rear engine while the DC-9, DC-10, MD-11, and 727
all have it?  And, speaking of the 727, does anyone know if its center engine
is pitched?
