In the early 1970s, Rolls Royce one of the most famous names in aero engineering went bust all because of just one project. Yet that same project went on to transform Rolls into the 2nd biggest engine maker in the world today. The project was the RB211 3 spool high bypass turbojet engine and this is the story of how and why it failed and how it was spectacularly resurrected by engineers that were brought out of retirement and started a line of engines that leads the world today.

  1. Another stellar video. My son has taken several turbo machinery classes in his Masters of Mechanical Engineering program. He found that he likes CFD (computational fluid dynamics) and thermodynamics. Maybe one day he’ll see for himself if the modern techniques can keep up with these old salts from WW2!

  2. What an interesting story. It just goes to show you these 5 Silverbacks had a lot to show what can be done with a slide-rule. "Computers? We don't need no stinking computers."

  3. I love how this channel takes a topic that doesn't sound that interesting and turns it into a fascinating and educational story with just the right amount of detail so that it makes sense, without going overboard. Great stuff.

  4. It’s sad to see the loss of many manufacturers in the EU and US. Rolls with the Merlin, and other designs made such a huge impact. I’m glad to see they could pull it through.

  5. Hey, from this video I learned my Dad, a "Conway" who started as an engine mechanic in the Connie area at the Kansas City TWA overhaul base, may have worked on a "Conway". And for some reason, I have always remembered the JT9D. I have his "Certificate of Inoculation" for "Jet Turbinitis" dated on 6/7/1960 and signed by "A. Turbine Wheel" and B. Burner Can".

  6. The deliberate Dumbing Down of American "education" is going to have an effect on our future for generations. Maybe forever. Other countries who are not trying to tear themselves apart from within are going to pass us by, and not even wave at us through their rear-view windows.
