Then I'd suggest you're not looking at a 124. They always do the power check from what I've seen (and I've worked at one airfield where the beast is very nearly a daily visitor).

The conspiracy theories have it that the Lotarev's on the 124 (and 225) were "heavily based" on the GE CF6, after some were acquired by the Soviets from a DC10 that was trapped on the ground in Kabul when they invaded Afghanistan!
