The Rolls-Royce RB.80 Conway was the first by-pass engine (or turbofan) in the world to enter service.
Used in the late 1950s and early 1960s the Conway powered versions of the Handley Page Victor, Vickers VC10, Boeing 707-420 and Douglas DC-8-40.
The “Conway” engine takes its name from the River Conwy, in Wales: In keeping with Rolls Royce’s use of river names for gas turbine engines relating to the ‘steady flow’ of the turbofan engine compared to the up and down movement of the piston engine.
A great memento ready gift boxed for the aviation enthusiast.
