What a superb shot!


It always fascinates me why the Merlins fitted to Mosquitos had only five exhaust stubs on each side for a V12 engine. Very odd.

There is a simple reason for the exhaust arrangement on a Mosquito's engines. The exhausts on the outer side of the engines used 6 stubs as expected. On the inner side if they had used 6 stubs the rear one would have exhausted onto the radiator in the wing center section leading edge. So the 2 rear stubs were combined into one and angled away from the radiator. Later marks that used the 2 stage Merlins which were longer and mounted further forward reverted to the 6 stub format. By then also most had been fitted with the exhaust covers that helped airflow over the stubs (and added a little extra thrust).

Yeah, I KNOW about the Mossie's exhausts (My Dad flew them a few times) but it's still a fascinating quirk of engineering.

The forward 'exhaust' on the 6 stub pic is actually the inside fairing of the exhaust duct housing, and I only know that as I've built a couple of models of that Mark of the Mossie.

Yeeeeah!  :-))


I've been there, and sat in that very same cab! It makes UK steam locos look like Hornby models, it's THAT big!
