Is it true that the AWACS aircraft in Geilenkirchen are the only airplanes in the world that are still fitted with noisy, environmentally unfriendly engines?


No. The U.S. AWACS aircraft are equipped with the same engines as the NATO AWACS, and various other American military planes are fitted with almost identical engines.
