Masters of War
6

Come you masters of war
You that build the big guns
You that build the death planes

A few from Robins Air Force Museum, GA

The museum has some great halls stuffed full of aeronautical interest.   I knew about radial piston engines but this 'corncob' Pratt and Whitney piston engine was a marvel.

And this MIG 17 only exists because the Brits, in 1946,  sold many Rolls Royce Nene jet engines to Russia  to help  pay off the British war debts.  Oops!

Sorry, the last two pics were not Sigma camera friendly.
