Use of powerback is limited by hot gas ingestion of the engine, the different
engines having a varying amount of susceptibility to the core engine eating
it's own efflux; some as little as 3 deg C temp rise. Aircraft geometry also
has a limiting role: but the key thing to remember is...NO BRAKES ON POWERBACK!
