757 question

Post by wwwayward »

Hello all
Happy Easter and Passover!
Just a general question about 757 engines
i was on a walkabout this morning and I saw an HMY 757 taking off.
does anyone know what engines these aircraft a fitted with?
It sounded like a really high pitch jackhammer...
also would love to know why they sound so different from any other engines.

Thanks in advance !!!

Pratt & Whitney PW2000 series or the Rolls Royce RB211

If it was a high-pitched sound it is probably the RB211 engines. Its high pitched as it has quite a narrow turbine shaft.
