From a small one-hangar beginning, the San Diego Air & Space Museum’s annex at Gillespie Field has grown to become an integral part of the Museum’s aircraft restoration and replica reproduction program. Staffed mainly by volunteers, the Facility has produced some of SDASM’s finest work.

Aircraft engines on display at San Diego Air & Space Museum Annex at Gillespie Field, El Cajon, CA.   This the R-4360 was a 28-cylinder four-row air-cooled radial engine setup. Each row of seven air-cooled cylinders possessed a slight angular offset from the previous, forming a semi-helical arrangement to facilitate effective airflow cooling of the cylinder rows behind them.   Designed and built during World War II, produced up to 4,000 horsepower or about 20 times that of the average automobile engine.
