In today’s plastic and electronic world, we often seem to lose sight of how important engineering skills are to us. And, we especially lose sight of how important solid engineering training is. We certainly don’t always seem to make things like we used to. Perhaps it is because our politicians mostly read PPE at Oxford or are former lawyers. They wouldn’t know a spanner if it hit them on the head! That leads me to ask the question…what exactly are our politicians good for? Answer (as in the song): ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!
Induction, compression, ignition and exhaust (for those who might be wondering if I have gone mad).
The innards of an aircraft engine. Kind of like human innards. There’s something very artistic about engines. Where would we be without heat engines?
A mess of engineering innards!
