In the early 1970s, Rolls Royce one of the most famous names in aero engineering went bust all because of just one project. Yet that same project went on to transform Rolls into the 2nd biggest engine maker in the world today. The project was the RB211 3 spool high bypass turbojet engine and this is the story of how and why it failed and how it was spectacularly resurrected by engineers that were brought out of retirement and started a line of engines that leads the world today.
