Porsche and BMW in flight ...
Lens: FA 1.8/77 limited Camera: K1 Photo Location: Luftfahrtmuseum Laatzen 
Posted By: volley, 5 Days Ago

Yesterday I spent a few hours in an Aviation Museum just half an hour away from my house.

Besides several interesting planes they show also several engines and turbines for planes. As a mechanical engineer who graduated (... long ago) in combustion engines I consider these true masterpieces of engineering ...

This is a BMW 801A, 2000 hp engine from 1944.
The design is a 14 Cylinder double-star configuration (i.e. 2 rows each with 7 cyl. in "star"configuration)





And Jer (@Sailor) this one is for you: basically a "Neunelfer" Porsche engine with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection as propulsion for small planes.
The engine designation is Porsche PFM 3200

Great shots, Buddy. The rich detail is impressive.

Of course - as you know - I love to gaze at engines from Porsche and BMW (even if they're not designed for cars ).
