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.

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.

First Engine Start FW190
FW190A-8 Werknummer 173056 quickly roared to life Sept. 21, 2009 after 8 1/2 years of restoration work on the four major components of 173056: Tail, fuselage, wings and engine. Located at the Baton Rouge Metro Airport at PAI Aero, this restoration is a project of Don and Linda Hansens engineering company. The engine was started but shut down quickly as a precaution due to lack of oil pressure indication - found later to be an incorrect pressure sender. Major Frank Hohmann from Flug-Werk in Gammelsdorf, Germany worked intently for most of September, as did Don Hansen and crew Rusty Gautreaux, Danny Trogé and Stephen Hansen to complete engine rigging. This de-preservation/pre-oiling run was a smoky success, with the 2000HP Ash82T engine starting instantly on the first try after 30 years in storage. The first flight is planned for Summer, 2010.

DC-3 Short field landing
This is the proper way to land a DC-3 on a short strip. Nose down to kill all lift and get maximum pressure on the landing gear, apply full brakes, let the tail down gently when the speed drops and you end up with a ground roll of 300 meters. This day there was a five knot crosswind from the left so the wind didn't help much to lower the landing speed.
