Aircraft engine. Two female engineers constructing a jet engine for use in an aircraft, in this case an Airbus passenger aeroplane. Jet engines take in air, compress it, and then use it to burn fuel. The exhaust gases leave the rear of the engine at a high pressure to provide thrust. Airbus aircraft are built by a consortium of European companies. Photographed in Germany.
