Engines

Our museum houses one of the finest collections of aero engines in the country. From the famous V12 Rolls Royce Merlin engine of the second world war to the Rolls Royce RB211 that powered the airliner that took you abroad, we have engines of all ages and types.

Some of our engines have been recovered from aircraft crash sites, and these include our Napier Sabre H24 and Armstrong Siddeley Cheetah engines but star of our recovered engine collection is our Bristol Hercules from a Vickers Wellington bomber from RAF Wing, which crashed on approach to RAF Dumfries. The recovery of this engine and what to do with it was the reason for starting our museum.

Our jet engines include the Avon, Spey, and Olympus from Rolls Royce and the De Havilland Goblin engine from our Gloster Meteor. It is a fascinating collection and can be found displayed mainly on the ground floor of the control tower.
