Rolls Royce Engines and Logos
Maybe too much idle time, but was noticing and wondering why many airliners with RR engines don't have the iconic Rolls logo on the nacelles.
I mean back in the day when the Viscount came out, Rolls was synonymous with the airliner. Indeed, when BOAC got their 707-400s, they called them Rolls Royce 707s.
I also miss the Pratt and Whitney logos, but Rolls always was the premier name.
