Guests Corner: Chris Starr

Chris Starr with Daimler-Benz DB605 Direct Fuel Injection Pump

This section of the website is dedicated to distributing the writings of Chris Starr, former RAF Tornado pilot, RAF Tanker pilot and responsible for the restoration and maintenance of the Daimler-Benz DB605 engine of the RAF owned and (previously operated) Messerschmitt Bf109G, otherwise known as “Black-6”, which is currently housed at RAF Cosford Museum in the British Midlands, just north of Birmingham.

Chris has exceptionally deep knowledge of this engine, and when he asked me if I would help publicise his writings about Second World War technology I jumped at the chance.

Chris writes material to increase public knowledge of the period and to disseminate his experience.
