Someone posted a question on rec.aviation.misc recently that turned into
quite a joke.  We still did not get an good answer.

The writer wanted to know why the engines on 727, DC9, and MD80's seem to
be canted nose up 1 or 2 degrees.

The discussion turned strange when someone suggested that airliners have
the ability to jettison engines by way of exposive bolts in the engine
attachments.  There are quite a few of the folks who actually believe
this.

Can someone here give me an answer to the engine question so I can put
this issue to rest.

Thanks
