Any RR Spey MX's out here in a.net land? Wondering how fussy these little devils are and what it would take to inspect and power up an original engine? Strictly for display, no intention for flight.


Looking for the impossible way to save those dying breeds!!!!

Re the thread subject, the Spey is a turbofan, not a turbojet.

This guy is pretty knowledgeable and has some good videos featuring the Spey:

It would be more helpful if you were more specific on which Spey series you are referring to? Military or Civilian? A/C type etc...

I will hazard a guess that this has something to do with the BAC1-11 discussed next door.

You could probably contact http://www.dallasairmotive.com/ and get some answers.

I believe they still do Spey's? They overhauled a couple of 555-15's for me, although that was 12-14 years ago.

How simliar are the Spey's on the BAC to the G-II and G-III Spey's? There are a lot of those still flying so I would imagine there is still some support in some way or another.

Well, I´m not involved in MX ...
But I know that in South Africa there´s still at least one Blackburn Buccaneer airworthy (and active) which has the military Spey engines. The Buccaneer is operated by "Thunder City" and it has a civilian registration.
If your bank account allows you can get a ride on it ...

Might be a good idea to contact them to get more detailed infos regarding maintenance of the Spey´s.

Unfortunately Thunder City closed down in late 2010.

Thunder city or not, the Bucc was flying as recently as last week.
