B-17 engine assemble video

Recommended Posts

Wondered if this would be useful for those building or detailing the Wright R-1820 engines of the B-17E, F, Gs. (Really helpful if you find interpreting still-photos and schematics to be difficult!)

It's from Periscope Film on YouTube, and is 20min long: 


It's a training video for mechanics, in black and white.  

(Interesting too: eg near the start, an engine is unwrapped from thick, clear plastic - didn't realise that was happening then.)
