A jet engine on an average commercial airliner weighs approximately 1,600 lbs. An entire commercial wing itself weighs in at about 95,000 lbs. So how do you attach an extra 2,000 lbs. of engine onto an already 100,000 lb wing structure and keep it from falling off? But wait, we forgot to factor in the present gravitational force pushing and pulling this 2,000 lb engine down and away from the wing during take-off. Point being, engineers overcome an enormous obstacle in attaching a jet engine underneath a wing (that sticks out 150 feet from its central airframe) and takes off against immense gravitational pull. In this article, we will give all praise due to aircraft pylons and engine mounts, the aircraft parts responsible for such an “achievement of attachment”.
