The Rolls-Royce RB 108 Aircraft Engine

The Rolls-Royce RB.108 was a vertical lift turbojet engine designed and tested in the former part of the 1950's by Alan A. Griffith to be used in vertical arrays of four or more fitted in an airframe to facilitate vertical take off and landing (VTOL). The main unusual design requirements for the Rolls-Royce RB.108 were that the engine had to be much shorter than normal, and the lubrication system designed for vertical, rather than horizontal, primary use. The Rolls-Royce RB 108 engine was used in three prototype aircraft, the Short SC.1, Mirage Balzac and the VFW SG 1262.
