I’ll see your spare tire and raise you an engine…
We had the capability on our older 747s to carry a spare engine inboard of the #2 engine. It was known as a 5th pod, and was a production option from Boeing. It could actually be carried on either side, but if it was on the right, it interfered a bit with loading the forward cargo pit. The JT-9 engine and its transport dolly would not fit in the cargo bay, so this was the solution. I believe it was available on the 707 as well. It made for a great trivia question – how many engines could a 747 have? Six, four main engines, the 5th pod and the APU!

The very same capability Virgin Orbit uses as a lunching platform https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cosmic_Girl_(aircraft)

That’s a quick way to deliver a wheel assembly to another station.
