Wreckage Photos (engine)

 

BELOW: One of the Anson's two Armstrong Siddeley Cheetah radial engines. This engine can still be seen at Criffel.

 

The second engine was recovered and transferred later to RAF Millom Museum (now closed). The second engine is now at South Yorkshire Aircraft Museum, Doncaster.

 

(See example of restored Cheetah engine here.)
