Video: How aircraft engines are tested before production

Most of us don't give aircraft engines much thought. Sometimes, when you're in the sky, you see the engines hanging under the wing and maybe ponder the sheer improbability of physics and everything holding together at 37,000 feet.

The manufacturer’s records and reputations assure us. But there is a lot of work put into getting us so comfortable and reassured.
