Spectacular Lockheed Super Constellation visual Approach - Paris Air Show 2013 ( HD )
The Lockheed Super Constellation was built between 1943 and 1958. 856 aircrafts were produced during these 15 years. I have tried to catch the Super Constellation with the well known nick name "Super Conni" since many years but it was never flying to an airport near my home airport. This time we decided to drive 500 km (320 miles) to Paris with one goal: Getting a good video and a good picture of this old lady. I am very content with the result because this visual approach was very impressive in my opinion. Thanks to " Breitling Super Constellation" for keeping this beauty in the air. Last year they had to cancel all flights due to technical problems. Thanks for watching, I hope you like and please don` t forget to rate.

Pure Jet Engine Afterburner Sound "Without Music".
The high pitch whine and hiss you here is caused by the Avpin starter, which is on the front of each engine, this produces a rush of gases, into a primary turbine which winds the engine up to 34% within 9 seconds. By that time fuel is being pumped to the engine and its dragging its own air, a very simple way of starting jet engines in the days before electric starters.The two wheeled trolley under the starboard wing is known as a trolley Ack,it uses 2 12v lorry batteries, this gives us 24V which is the minimum voltage required to run all the pumps, etc prior and during the start of each engine. (28v is the 'peak' voltage) The wire (a 'bigun') runs from the trolley ack to the 'power in' point in the starboard wheel well In the old days walnuts were used to clean the old smokers (jets) - just toss them in with engine on.Explosive devices could also be detonated to get the jet turbine spinning if no AGE equipment was available (eg emergency) This method was sometimes used on older United States jet engines,if anyone has got video of this please put it on YouTube, it sounds like a great thing to see. The only way to describe what it sounded like,well stick a air hose in your ear and pull the trigger,yeah it was awesome and kinda painful,a incredible white noise when near the engine,it was only when I got further away that the jet engine roar was audible. If a merlin engine sounds like Beethoven a jet afterburner sounds like Motorhead LOL!! http://www.lightnings.org.uk/

TU-154 RA-85563 Almost Crash! (subtitles)
29 april 2011 at Chkalovsky Airport (military airport base 31 km northeast of Moscow) TU-154 RA-85563 experienced serious trouble right after take-off. The automatic control system (АБСУ) broke down wich caused the pilots to steer the plane using only engines. The plane was made in 1982 and since 2005 never flew. The pilots were ordered to fly the aircraft to Samara for repairs. Luckily the captain Radionov is a very experienced pilot. If not for his skills the plane would definitely crash. The Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Air Force Alexander Zelin will award the pilots for their actions. The plane in result got no damage.
