Author's note: All miniature engines run on gas or gasoline. They were showed for the first time in 2003 (anniversary of the Flyer's first controlled flight) when they held an exhibition at Caixa Laietana's Cultural Center in Mataro.

-A second presentation was made at the 2005 Forum in Barcelona. Miniatures and real engines were exhibited.

-The third one at the Caixa Laietana's new Cultural Center in 2010-11. Both groups, miniatures and real engines, were exposed.

-Another exhibition where miniatures were showed, was held at the Safran Museum in Villaroche (France) in October 2011.

Very Important Note: Due to the prolonged "economic-confidence" crisis and also to the lack of local stimulation to do something important with this "Enginys mecanics" collection in Mataro, the owner is starting to dismantle it. There is a shortage of very interesting proposals.

-Hopelessness has come very significantly because of lack of interest from the local council that, disposing of several magnificent empty outbuildings, for a more or less justified fear, does not allow their use for a temporary or permanent exhibition of this irreplaceable material. I know that J. Castellsaguer has no economic or any other kind of interest in this proposal.

-'A big shame. We'll have to go to Turkey or Australia to see these aircraft engines again. We still have the consolation of seeing the pictures in this chapter of my A-Z edition.

-Note written in the 4th quarter of 2013.


-During the "Festa del Cel" (Sky festival) on September 28th 2014 that was held on a rainy day in Mataro (BCN) Mr. J.C. has had an exhibition at the City's Cultural Center "Can Marfat" The exhibition occupied an entire floor, still with a great part of his material. Thank goodness, congratulations!!
