After logging more than 8,000 hours and nearly 17,000 cycles of ground and flight testing, the latest-generation Boeing 737 MAX, powered by a pair of advanced LEAP-1B engines has made its maiden flight. The CFM LEAP is the world’s first jet engine to include 3D-printed fuel nozzles and engine shroud made from tough, lightweight materials called ceramic matrix composites (CMCs). While providing double-digit improvements in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, the engine reduces noise and emissions. Read more about CFM LEAP and it’s first flight on GE Reports.

hawke definitely gets a lot of good ones in on carver but consider:
hawke loudly boasting that carver’s not that funny and carver telling them ‘remember that time i convinced everyone in the village ur name was garry’ and now the whole gang won’t stop calling them garry
leandra asking if carver has and cool friends and hawke dramatically thowing their arms around him going ‘mother please, carver doesn’t hang out with anyone cool’ and carver going ‘yeah i spend all my time with you’
carver exploiting the more honest members of the gang (meaning ppl who don’t lie re: merrill, seb, aveline) in order to play elaborate jokes, such as convincing hawke that they’ve actually turned invisible and that no one can see them
carver has definitely done the ‘fill their hand with cream and tickle their nose so they slap their face’ prank
carver coming home, moving all the furniture an inch to the left, leaving to meet up with hawke and pretending he has no clue why they keep hitting stuff
hawke replacing all of the portraits in the house with finely painted pictures of dog, sandal and varric as a proud family of three
carver convincing the wardens that his older sibling’s name is actually garry so they go to weisshaupt ‘i’m hawke’ and everyone is like AYE IT’S GARRY HAWKE
varric writes tales of the champion w/ hawke’s name as garry hawke
It takes tough love to test a jet engine. Our team in Peebles, OH subjects engines to grueling trials to make sure they keep working when they fly into hailstorms, dust clouds or even ingest a goose. Some tests are more rigorous than others, but “you’ve got to prove that your engines are good,” says Brian DeBruin, who runs the test operations site in Peebles.
