If I am not mistaken, water injection was used by South African Airways
on their RR Conway powered 707s.  JNB is very hot and very high.  I
understand that Boeing has also recommended water injection for 777s they
are  trying to sell SAA.  To meet SAA's requirements, Boeing apparently
has recommended a "thrust bump" using the injection. Needless to say,
SAA maintenance engineers are not thrilled with the prospect of the heavy
wear this will bring about.
