    yes - but if it deploys on dry land, people are on and off the slide in a few minutes, and the cowling will protect the slide long enough... and if it the slide deploys in water, the red hot engine isn't red hot anymore.

    Mmm, but won't the heat deflate it. Or have I missed something?

    There is very little heat radiated from the sides of a modern jet liner engine. Modern turbo fan designs pump huge volumes of air through external ducts to add thrust to the exhaust. An heat that is lost to the sides is lost thrust. All of the heat is "blown" out the back.

    Remember there can't be so much heat escaping from the sides because the engines are bolted to the fuel tanks!!
