   The Pratt & Whitney engine for the 777 flying test bed arrived Monday at
   Boeing Field from the Arnold Engineering Development Center (AEDC) in
   Tennessee.  The engine will meet up with RA001 -- the first 747 ever
   built -- in late October, when the engine will be hung on the left wing
   of the airplane.  Before flight testing begins in November, the engine's
   inlet and thrust reverser, along with extensive flight deck
   instrumentation, will be installed.

Can somebody get us some specifications of this engine?
Especially interesting would be comparisons between this
new engine's specifications and the specifications of,
say, the engines in use on existing 747's, MD-11's,
large Airbus planes, 767's, etc...
