Boeing 787-8 high power ground run

This high power ground run was performed after a routine visit to the hangar for a maintenance check (called a 4A check). Performing the run allows us to check that the engine and it’s auxiliary equipment are operating normally and there are no fluid leaks from filters that have been replaced.

The Rolls Royce Trent 1000 engine actually sucks moisture from the pavement.
