Our tour around Hercules 848 continues with the engines and a few overall views.

A detailed view of one of the large propellers. Note the amount of stenciling and logos.

A close-up of the peculiarly shaped cuffs at the blade roots.

Detail of some of the inlets and outlets of the nacelle. The red square marks a spring loaded hatch used to access the nacelles in case of fire.

The jet exhaust and the area behind it.

An overall view showing the contrast between a rather clean front end and a remarkably dirty rear!

A final reminder not to forget to add nose weight! 843 was found in this condition one morning after a heavy snowfall!
