9 Correct answers, then it went quiet.
I'll give it the usual 24 hours before wrapping this one up.
Wow :-O , is that the fastest 'CBFS SPOTTER' competition that we've had? In comparison, the previous one felt like an eternity.

PeteP, Simon (simondix), AllanL, PaulK, Mick (woody901), Den (511Flyer), Pete (Motormouse), Kevin Farnell, and Keith (Dev One) all got it :welldone:

Indeed, you have got it, Ben.
So there's your requested clue, Paul, Pete & Others. Oh, do you know the engines?
