Warbird Adventure Rides Ltd's Supermarine Spitfire Mk IX ZK-WDQ was in the Avspecs hangar yesterday in the process of having its engine changed, probably as a result of its recent propellor strike while making a precautionary landing at Drury. Ouch!
That is some serious horsepower in 2 Merlin engines lined up in front of the nose! The last time there were 2 Merlins at Avspecs they were attached to a Mosquito.
The engine plate of the new engine being installed shows it to be a Packard Built Rolls Royce, model V 1650-266.
