Originally designed and built for Rolls Royce in approximately 1976, this machine was sold back to Etchells, shipped to their facility in West Midlands, England, and rebuilt and upgraded in 1996. It was then sold to GE Aviation and shipped to GE’s Rutland, Vermont USA facility. We purchased the machine and have dismantled and shipped it to our warehouse in Massachusetts USA and now have it available for inspection on request.

It was only run light and intermittently at GE and now that we have dismantled and put it into storage we can confirm that the machine is in extraordinarily good condition.
