Heinkel He 111P Engine
A view of the starboard engine of the He 111P that crashed close to Dalkeith on 28 October 1939, making it the first aircraft to crash on British soil during the Second World War (although not the first to be shot down - others either crashed into the sea or exploded). The He 111P was powered by the Daimler Benz DB 601 inline engine. Other pictures of the same aircraft show the position of the supercharger intake, the main visible difference between the P and H series. British wartime sources refer to this as a He 111K, a type that does not appear to have existed. The aircraft was part of KG 26.
