Hercules Engines

Go back to the records from the 1932 map.

G1603. Storage of Hercules 14 cylinder engines on little trolleys, around Circa 1948. They look like new or throughly overhauled engines. You can see the different variable pitch gearboxes. They are awaiting delivery for use in several kinds of aircraft in possibly many different countries.
