Jet Sea Plane

Morris C8

One of the engines was used in Bluebird that crashed on Coniston Water Water in which Donald Campbell died if my memory is correct which it isn't always



Bluebird at the time of the crash was running on a 4500lbf Bristol Orpheus engine (type used in Gnat light fighter/trainer) it had replaced the Metropolitan-Vickers Beryl MVB.2 3,850 lbf jet used earlier.
