    There are two static displays of Wright R3350 Duplex Cyclone engines at the Doolittle museum. I took 109 photos and organized them by fore, aft, starboard, port, and fuel system. I am interested in technical information if anyone cares to share... manuals, identification of parts, etc. Here are the photos I took:

    I have 650 pictures I took inside the front half of Miss America 62. I hope to get in the back half sometime soon to get another few hundred. Love to chat with similar interested folks regarding the B29.

    Thanks a lot for these superb pictures.

    Obviously, the two engines are very different models, one is a turbo-compound with rear exhaust for every cylinders, other one is a conventional model, but with front exhaust for front row...

    I will look for manuals for these models.

    Thanks again

    Regards, Alain
