Rolls Royce Heritage Group Open Day - Derby - 12th September

Post  TRR Motorsport on Tue Jul 14, 2009 12:39 pm

Like jet engines?

Love rocket motors?

Fancy sitting inside a Canberra cockpit?

Want to stand 10 feet aways from a running RR Merlin on a test bed at 120dB ?

Then you've got to come along to the Heritage groups annual open day at the Rolls Royce works at Derby.

It's an awesome day that you'll really enjoy.

It's also the day before the National Mini Show at Stamford Hall so anyone coming along is more than welcome to kip over at our house the night before and sample a few beers up at the Rag & Mop.

I might even be able to organise camping at the pub if you'd prefer that instead. Very Happy

Try standing under the back of a VC10 doing engine runs with each Conway producing 20,000 lbs of thrust.

That gets your bits vibrating, better than the spin cycle girls Twisted Evil

I did not know this did you?

You might think that this is the American Space Shuttle on a modified 747 - nope its was the Russion's version of the Shuttle called the Buran (means Snowstorm) mounted on an Antonov 225 and this was taken in 1989 at the Paris airshow - I thought I knew a lot of stuff about spaceflight but I had never heard of this before.

I didn't know that either. It looks a little shorter than the NASA version.

Maybe its a spare Shuttle from Drax Industries? alien

Don't forget guys, the open day is this weekend.

There is access to two sites, 12 Shop on Osmaston Road, Derby and Wilmore Road, Derby. There is a shuttle bus between the two but it's quicker to drive.

The gates open at 10am.

We'll see you there. Very Happy

We're undecided yet. Got masses of stuff to do to the house/garden and running out of time to do them before winter. Might be able to do both....will see.
