In this BBC documentary we look at how to build a A Jumbo Jet Engine. As the Boeing 787 Dreamliner made it’s first flight back in 2013 using the revolutionary Trent 1000 jet engine made by Rolls Royce we follow the story of how this amazing piece of technology and engineering took shape. The Trent 1000 is the latest, most efficient and most sophisticated engine from a long line of models that keep Rolls Royce at the top of its game.
In the documentary we see how thousands of people collaborate to make the most efficient jumbo jet engine ever. From the designing phase to the manufacturing process in Derby and across the UK the film gives us a unique insight into making this awesome piece of machinery. A Jumbo Jet Engine documentary that looks into every aspect of making an idea come into reality.
This is a really fantastic documentary that throws out some crazy stats; at full throttle the Trent engine cycles 2 tonnes of air per second and each blade of the fan is subjected to 90 tonnes of force. If you are applying for a job at Rolls Royce it would be a good idea to watch this documentary first.
