Rolls-Royce and Aeroflot are celebrating that one of the airlines Trent 700 engines has completed more than 50,000 engine flying hours without requiring an overhaul – a world record for a widebody engine. The 50,000 engine flying hours is the equivalent to travelling around the world more than 1,000 times, the engine running non-stop for more than five years, 2,000 services for a typical family car for the equivalent amount of miles; and travelling to the moon and back 50 times. The engine first entered service in 2008 powering an Airbus A330 aircraft. Andrey Panov, Aeroflot, deputy CEO for strategy
