        Loads of tourists, warm, camels, habitation in the rocks.

        Petra?

          That was quick. Yes, it's Petra, Jordan

          From the entrance to the city.

            Amazing place - never been, but in common with anyone else who's got friends that have been, I've seen quite a few photos!!

            I feel a bit guilty for a lucky guess Oistein - why don't you set us another one?

                Fantastic view - C130s really are trucks with jet engines.

                  I believe Sterkoder will tell you that the C-130 doesn't have jet engines, but Turbo props.
                  The airstrip on Jan Mayen is dirty, as can be seen from the dust being thrown up by the prop wash.

                    Just me being simplistic - turboprop, turbofan, jet engines, they all involve pumping something combustible into a turbine!! Turboprop just sticks a propellor on the front of it! Apologies for inaccuracy.

                      Looks like Oistein is not going to oblige. You may have to get over that guilty feeling and post the next one.

                        Well..., as I see it is expected in here, I can not keep quiet when it comes to airplanes.

                        The four Allison engines on the Hercules are jet engines all right, and they are fueled with JET A-1 fluid like any other jet engine, but the forward motion of the aircraft is a result of four huge props, so therefore (no matter what drives the shaft, a "Fat Albert" is per definition a propeller aircraft. (We all know that there are no pistons there).
                        You could say that the largest jet engines also have a huge prop in front, and that it is coverd with an engine cowling, but the forward motion of a plane with such an engine comes from a powerful jet stream behind the engine, as the huge "prop" up front is only used to suck air into the engine.
                        This was a tee-spoon explanation...., just to classify what is a propeller airplane and what is a jet engined airplane. As they are all defined on what we actually see on the outside. Puh...

                        Other than that, technically I agree with our friend here, Mark...

                          OK, OK!! How about this one.

                            Well, I wondered why they put blade fans outside.

                                Think you're going to narrow it down a little more than that Yves!!
