Armstrong-Siddeley Cheetah X

375 hp engine

Oxford engine

Taken at Taranaki Aviation, Transport, and Technology Museum, March 1997. The museum holds a number of Oxford parts in addition to those recovered from the wreck of NZ277. This engine is in running condition, and may eventually contribute to an Oxford restoration. Note the carrying frame, throttle console, and other arrangements (like the oil tray) which allow this engine to be operated.
