USAF Engineering Division
USAF Engineering Division Records Index

Development of US Air Force airplanes, engines, propellers, and equipment was overseen by the USAF Engineering Division. Records from 1917 through about 1950 are available at the US National Archives. From 2005 through 2008 the AEHS compiled the most complete searchable on-line index of these records in existence.

 
GE90-115B Testing & Evaluation
GE90-115B Gas Turbine Engine Testing & Evaluation

The GE90-115B delivers 115,000 pounds of thrust. FAR Part 33 Certification includes crosswind, hail ingestion, water ingestion, bird ingestion, tripple-redline, and blade-off tests.

Journal of the Aircraft Engine Historical Society

For seven years the AEHS published a prestigious quarterly journal, Torque Meter, which contained articles on all types of aircraft engines, both new and old. Topics included engines and the aircraft they powered with emphasis on the engine installation, propellers, accessories, cooling, operation, and maintenance.

Torque Meter is no longer published. However,

All Torque Meter Back Issues Are Still Available!

Help Needed

Rolls-Royce Merlin Book

The Rolls-Royce Heritage Trust is putting together a book about the Merlin engine. We would like to include a list of surviving engines, and to this end any help would be appreciated.

All that is required is the mark and serial number of the engine, be it airworthy, on display, in a museum aircraft or in private ownership. Engines must be complete or substantially complete - no wrecks. All marks are eligible for engines made in the UK, USA and Australia.

We hope to collect serial numbers of all Packard Merlins, including the -3, -7 and -9s, etc., in Mustangs/museums/privately owned (even those built by Continental). Any such knowledge about Merlins other than those in USA/Canada would also be helpful.

If anyone would like to provide me with such details they can e-mail me through E-mail address

Dave Birch, Rolls-Royce Heritage Trust
