    I found these from the fighter factory site on face book. Thought they were pretty cool.

    "Throwing" together a LeRhone engine to ship out for overhaul. Better to ship one big part (engine) than a bunch of little parts. And yes jt will be going on an airplane after it is done. Just can't tell you which one yet (wink wink).

    Where did you find such a term "Internal radial engine"? And whom is it never seen?

    Probably meant that he'd never seen the insides of one. I'm still amazed by the fact that the engine spins around the crankshaft.
