Another fun fact: turbo-fans like those in the picture

also greatly contributes to their quietness, as it helps insulate exhaust/noise from the core of the engine, where the huge fire is taking place

Also, for a little fun fact, those little serrated edges are called chevrons.

So you look at everything that has similar edges to the Chevron symbol and assume it's called chevron? Okay. A lot of people didn't automatically know the name. I provided the fact, and I'm sure they can see the resemblance after being told what it's called.

My point is that there are plenty of people who do not deal with that term on a daily basis. I thought some might be interested to know. First, you see the edge. Then, you see that it's called Chevron. Then, you put two and two together. How can people put two and two together if they've never been told the name for it before? See my point?

not busting your balls, it just seems pretty obvious to me, like Delta's logo, see that triangular shape? it's called a delta, or vice versa

This will pretty much remain the same as none of the major US airlines have purchased the new 747.

....I see the resemblance. I have always seen the resemblance.

I don't know how else I can demonstrate my point.

It looks just like the Chevron symbol.

But if someone doesn't look at that edge and know they term, they aren't just going to go "AHA! I bet they call that the chevron, amirite?"

So it's not pointless to say, hey, by the way, they call these chevrons.
