A powerful Pratt & Whitney 70,000 lbs of thrust PW4168A engine, on a Delta Airbus A330, shows us just how big it really is.
Think these A330 main gear tires look small? They're actually about 4ft tall, weigh 253lbs each, and are rated to handle speeds of up to 235mph. As best as I can tell, they run anywhere from USD $5000 to $7000 EACH, and are the same as those used on the gigantic A380.
