During the week of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee enjoy this video of a fine example of British engineering. The engine was built 40 years ago,left active service in 1992 having spent its life attached to a TWA Lockheed L1011 Tristar. The engine was left outside for about 5 years before being rescued from the local airport and single handedly restored to running condition by myself. I am not an engineer by trade or profession and have no previous engineering experience.
It is a tribute to Rolls Royce that this very same engine that cost millions to develop and almost broke the company can be restored and run in the back garden of a family home/small-holding by an amateur mechanic. Thanks for watching.

PS We tried a JT9D and a CF6 but couldn't do anything with either of them ;-)
