Jet engine turbine nozzle. The nacelle (central peak) of this modified jet engine turbine nozzle is at centre. Jet engine turbines work by drawing in and compressing air with a fuel mixture before igniting the mixture to generate thrust from exhaust gases. This turbine is being manufactured for use in an SU (Sukhoi) jet aircraft. Photographed in 2006 at the Salut engineering works in Moscow, Russia.
