  • Pratt & Whitney R-1340 Data Plate

    SKU: 20-PRTS-9

     Original data plate for this famous engine in service since the 1920's.  This one carrries the Mft ID No. 22314 which may place it in the 1940's.  One of the helicopters I flew, the Sikorsky H-19 was powered by this engine.  Come to think of it, I blame this engine for much of my hearing loss!
