Can't be- again, that's a pic of 709 as delivered, taken BEFORE Donald agreed to purchase, and took delivery of, 711! (Interesting stand that it's on- clearly not a standard Orph engine stand- more like some kind of test rig that the thing maybe actually ran in?)

I think 709 was a complete runner- remember it was on temporary loan from the AM, whereas 711 was then purchased outright and was fully Donald's- that was possibly the appeal of him snapping their arm off for it.
The jet pipe removal could be as simple as fitting it on the back of a scrap man's lorry!
