Packard-built Merlin Tag

I thought readers might enjoy seeing this engine tag on a Packard-built RR Merlin engine.

I certainly did. Nice little piece of history there.

I ran across this photo from a vacation a couple of years ago, I thought I would share with you. This was listed
as a Packard Merlin engine--it seems to have the same type tag as the other foto. It was on exhibit at the Air
Force Museum at Robbins AFB--a really nice aircraft collection--at Warner Robbins, GA. This is an exit or two
South on I-75 from Macon, GA. My father was stationed there during WWII as a radar instructor.
