The history of the Spey engine is unusual in that it first saw service in civil applications and later was adapted for a variety of military aircraft. Although varying emphasis is placed on certain aspects of combustion performance depending on the role of the engine, it has been the aim of the development program to produce a common combustion specification of a sufficiently high standard to meet all demands. In this historical survey, extending from the background of earlier designs to current civil and military service, all areas of performance are mentioned, but particular attention is given to the problem of exhaust smoke.
