Another string to our bow making vintage aircraft propellers !
We were asked to manufacture replica propeller blades and hubs fo a twin engined Bolingbroke aircraft that is being restored and put on display at the National Museums of Scotland, East Fortune Aircraft Museum. The new blades , hubs and mechanisms were cast locally and we machined them to give a complete assembly for both engines. The final fitting took place on site with the propellers being slipped onto the output shafts from the engines, the complete mechanism is to painted on site prior to being put on public show starting this Easter.
The East Fortune site is excellent and we are proud of our involment over the years with the restoration staff, we did a lot of work on site when they took delivery of a Concorde which is on display with many other interesting exhibits. The museum is well worth a visit.
