The Second (Higher) Engine

 

 

BELOW: The second of the two Armstrong Siddeley Cheetah engines. This one lies on higher ground.

 

Following a line from the large rock against which this engine is leaning, past the other large rock in the background, the first Cheetah engine can just be seen lying in boggy ground.

BELOW: The second (higher) engine shown in relation to the base of Clints of the Spout (South).

 

This engine is from Avro Anson N9589 that crashed at the southern end of Clints of the Spout. The wreckage of the other Avro Anson (W2630) that crashed at the northern end of the Clints is scattered in the rocks in the left background, about 100m from this engine.
