This perfectly restored engine manufactured by the Beardmore Aero Engine Co. is in the Personal Courage Wing of the Museum of Flight. A close cousin to the Porsche design Austro-Daimler engine Britain’s Beardmore engine evolved from 120 hp to 160 hp by the end of World War I. This engine weighs 545 pounds / 245kg and developed 135 hp at 1200 rpm.
