The Queensland Air Museum presents its collection of historic operational aircraft engines in a special display of aviation horsepower. The awesome sight and sound of a 1500 horsepower 14 cylinder radial engine powering up is an unforgettable experience and not to be missed.

Visitors are encouraged to inspect the engines between runs and talk to the volunteers who restored them.
