A particularly significant engine is P & W’s R-2800, two of which are clearly visible on our Douglas A-26 “Invader”.

This was truly a war-winning engine from World War II.

It is an eighteen-cylinder two-row radial that was fitted in many famous fighters including the Grumman F6F “Hellcat”, Vought F8U “Corsair” and Republic P-47 “Thunderbolt”.
