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.





Eastern Air Lines N836D, Douglas DC-7B.
Built in 1958, and delivered to Eastern Air Lines, during January 1958. In service for only 5 years, before it was sold to the Nomads Flying Club. It was their first airplane. After only 5 years, it was re-sold. Mostly parked for 32 years, before being ferried from dowtown Minneapolis airport in September, of 2004. After a lengthy and thorough restoration, it is almost ready to return to the skies.

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/





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.





Super Constellation Start Engine





Lockheed Super Constellation Start-Up & Take Off at Airport Bern-Belp
A legendary Lockheed L-1049F Super Constellation, HB-RSC, visited Airport Bern-Belp in Switzerland. Engine start-up with flames and smoke. Flame out while turning on the runway. Close-up take off and great engine sound. The "Super Connie" is still considered the most beautiful aircraft ever built. The elegant dolphin-shaped fuselage and the triple tail design are a feast for the eyes. The distinctive sound of the four powerful 18-cylinder radial engines (Wright R-3350) make the heart of any plane enthusiast beat faster. The screechy brakes might put a smile on the faces of many people. Enjoy the close-up view of the spectacular Super Constellation; a great piece of aviation history or in other words a flying legend! The Swiss watch manufacturer BREITLING is the main sponsor of this classic airliner.

Lockheed Electra Propulsion Story
Developing the Alison 501-D13 for the Lockheed Electra. The Alison 501-D13 is a single shaft gas turbine with a 14 stage axial flow compressor driven by a four stage turbine. It was originally developed by the Alison Engine Company for the Lockheed C-130 transport (designated T56) entering production in 1954. With an unusually long production run, over 18,000 engines have been produced since 1954, logging over 200 million flying hours. The military version (T56) was first flown in the nose of a B-17 test-bed aircraft in 1954. A Lockheed Constellation was used as a flying test bed for the civilian version (501-D13) with Aeroproducts propeller. The Constellation performance was so impressive with these engines, the flight test pilots nicknamed it the "Elation". The engine also flew on the P-3 Orion, E-2/C-2, as well as civilian airliners such as the Convair 580 and Lockheed Electra.
