If it weren't I would be asking why not! put it that way. :D

The Vampire has the most gorgeous sound in the air, those Goblin engines make wonderful music.

I think we all have good memories of specific aircraft for that very reason. I have always had a soft spot for the Classic Airliners,  Bristol Britannia and VC-10 because they were the first aircraft you would spot out on the airfield when arriving at Duxford. 20 years on and they are still in the same spot. It still brings back good memories when I see them today. :)

Exactly!!  Main reason my favorite aircraft of all time is the Convair B-36. First aircraft I ever remember seeing in person when my dad was stationed at Offutt way back when (She was the biggest bird in the outdoor SAC Museum, sadly no longer there).

Sorry for the confusion but are you asserting that it has it's original engine or asking if it does? And also do you mean original engine type or actual original engine given to this specific aircraft?

I'm asking if it has the original engine

Well it certainly is powered by a de Havilland Goblin, whether it is this actual aircraft's original service engine, I do not know. :)

Cool if it is a modern Goblin engine it'll be more fuel efficient and with more power to
