Can anyone give me some approximate guidelines to compare jet engine
thrust and rotating shaft power.
We were recently looking over The Queen Mary at Long Beach and in the
engine room it said that the four turbines produced about 260,000 horse
power between them. About as much as a modern Jumbo I said but was
greeted with disbelief.

Was I that far out ?
