BTT
?

No, I don't think so.

BTT - What does BTT stand for? Acronyms and abbreviations by the Free Online Dictionary.

You're shooting from the hip mate. Not a Heinkel.

Gonna be a slow progress. Do you want me to give you the manufacturer?

Well, from the picture I nicked from the net, it's all nacelle, but other photos are very dark and it's hard to tell. I doubt the cart could retract.
