Lockheed C-121C Super Constellation engine start up
This is the Lockheed C-121C Super Constellation "Connie" VH-EAG operated by the Historical Aircraft Restoration Society (http://www.hars.org.au/2009/05/the-connie/) firing up engine number 1 at the 2011 Australian Air Show. This was the closing night, Sunday March 6.
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.

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.
