Pratt & Whitney gives money, engine

Pratt & Whitney has donated $1 million dollars to the National World War II Museum in New Orleans.

The company also is donating a Twin Wasp R-1830-90D, an engine that powered several different World War II aircraft.

The monetary donation will be used in part to obtain and exhibit a Corsair, a World War II-era fighter aircraft made famous by “Pappy” Boyington’s Black Sheep Squadron.

The Twin Wasp engine will provide museum visitors with a close-up look at the technology that powered thousands of aircraft during the war.

Pratt & Whitney produced over 360,000 aircraft engines during the World War II era.

Pratt & Whitney President David Hess said the donation is important for sharing the history of a pivotal time in world events.

Hess will be joining the board of trustees for the museum.

Pratt & Whitney is a United Technologies Corp. company.
