For those who may be about to ask "Why 5 Engines?"....

The 747 Is used to ferry spare engines around the world by attaching them
inboard on the Left Wing between the Normal inboard engine and the
wing root.

It's a "funny" sight to see but it's another reason why MR. Boeing
has soo many 747's flying - Damn Good Aircraft.
