When viewed from directly in front, the engine intake looks like two concentric circles. The smaller circle is the intake of the jet engine itself; air is routed around the engine to the aft-fan; and another nacelle encapsulates the whole thing. If you can track down a picture taken from the front, you can see this. Or, maybe you'll be lucky enough to see an actual CV990 up close. (I've only seen one CV990 "in person" in my life. This was more than 20 years ago, at a transportation museum in Lucerne, Switzerland. I think that at the time it may have been a new display, as I remember some people working on it.) ---- Joe Castleman -- firstname.lastname@example.org Gyrofrog Communications -- http://www.io.com/~jcastle Austin, Texas U.S.A.
