Love of jet engines inspires design of new GE Aviation plant

      EVENDALE, Ohio — At GE Aviation’s world headquarters, a new power building is turning heads: The front façade replicates a jet engine looking to the sky. The top of the building’s rotunda features a front fan nose cone with blades around it just like a jet engine. The front windows resemble the sides of a jet engine. That nose cone with a distinct spiral is well-known to air travelers. It’s based on the cone of the CFM56-7 engine, one of the world’s most ubiquitous engines, which powers the Boeing 737.

He did not, however, say what would happen to happen to the remaining 14 A350-900s from the same contract. Until recently, Aeroflot remained among two customers (Asiana Airlines still holds an order for eight A350-800s) on… Read More
