    Default Old Wright engine factory.

    Hi,

    Ran across this old, 1942, video from a Wright engine manufacturing plant.

    Great video. Very interesting to see the complete production/assembly. Surprised at that time they disassembled and inspected each engine off the test cell.

    Wow... unbelievable. So many parts.... Also got a kick out of those B-17s, all very early models with the small tail, and a glimpse of the reason our short-wing "Clippers" were changed to "Pacers" -- Thank Juan Trippe for that....
