The city of Oberursel/Taunus, the second production site for Rolls-Royce Germany, is the oldest existing aircraft production site in the world. Its museum, housed in the Dr. Günter-Kappler-Haus, displays an overview of the history of motor production in Oberursel, beginning with its founding at the Oberursel Motor Factory in 1892. Among the various exhibits of the museum are rotary engines, cooling fans, as well as a turbo fan engine, which is part of our modern long-haul aircraft.

  1. Maurice Mountford says

    I am researching my Fathers working life and can remember he worked in Oberusel in the early 1960s on secondment from Bristol-Siddeley Engines. He was a test engineer and I have many photos of him in Germany working with and Instructing on the use of the test cells…He worked with a man called Peter Levine? and many others there! My Father retired after 50 years from Rolls-Royce in 1990 and passed away in 1996, his name was Montague F.N.Mountford.
