N462M (cn 14153) During my visit to the museum last year all was normal so imagine my shock when I saw the cylinder protruding through the cowling of the #2 engine! All appeared legit to me until I received an email from Carlos Gomez. Carlos said that the cylinder protruding through the cowling was a front row cylinder but that it was protruding through the rear of the cowling above the rear row of cylinders. Gotta wonder what’s going on here?

Great shot of the plane. I wonder what they are doing to it.

I seen this to at the museum, the tour guide that was with us said that the engine blew the cylinder head out when they were ferrying the aircraft back or someone was ferrying it, and it was missing thus causing the hole, and when it got to the museum, instead of plugging the hole they decided to leave it and put the head there

This is a one of a pilot's worst nightmaers. I flew R-3350 Super Compounds for 4000 hours but never had anything like this happen. In fact, I only had to feather one once.

I guess this is what you call an air cooled engine!

Does raise a lot of questions. Looks also as if this beauty was smacked with some hail!

Looks like someone i shaving a little fun with the insurance guys. the still intact exhaust plugs give it away....

Ralph, great image and glad it made it into the database. Thanks for supporting Airliners.net.

A visitor from United States posted Fri June 15, 2007:
This a 'moth-balled cylinder. There is a yellow plastic plug in one port and a cover over the other. If it was a working cylinder, the intake and exhaust manifolds would have been bolted at these locations.

Strange. Leaves a lot of questions.

??!? I KNEW these bolts in my pocket were supposed to go somewhere...

Great clarity, composition, and gives an immediate visceral feeling of trouble and danger.
