Guys on the left were working on RR Merlin which didn't startup at that
Shutter speed was automatic, since propellers look strange.

Men Bet Their Lives on It -- Packard Merlin Engines
Rolls-Royce developed the legendary Merlin engine that held land, aviation
and water speed records. It was unmatched but the Rolls factories were
threatened during WWII and the company needed a partner in a safe country
that could produce the engines as well. They also had to be able to
produce them up to Rolls-Royce standards. Packard was the one.
Packard built Merlin engines for the Lancaster bombers, P-51 Mutangs and
other airplanes during WWII in its Detroit Factory with American workers
who served on the home front by transforming the auto factories into the
Arsenal of Democracy. Many credit the industrial might of this country
with winning the War.
These engines won the Battle of Britain and took the fight far into
Germany. Other Packard engines were enlisted to power PT Boats.
