BOTH of Maurice Hammond's wonderful P51 Mustang restorations. Marinell &
Janie, starting up and taking off from Hardwick Airfield in Norfolk UK.
Wonderful Merlin Engine sounds and awesome head on takeoff footage.
This was filmed for the Ridley Scott YouTube project "Life in A Day", thus
the slightly oddball questions included - they were set within the project.
Maurice and his family & helpers do a great deal of charity work besides
keeping his amazing collection of planes in the air, so please support them
whenever you can!
The North American Aviation P-51 Mustang was an American long-range,
single-seat fighter and fighter-bomber used during World War II, the Korean
War and other conflicts. The Mustang was conceived, designed and
built by North American Aviation (NAA) in response to a specification
issued directly to NAA by the British Purchasing Commission.
The prototype NA-73X airframe was rolled out on 9 September 1940, 102 days
after the contract was signed and, with an engine installed, first flew on
The Mustang was originally
designed to use the Allison V-1710 engine, which had limited high-altitude
performance. It was first flown operationally by the Royal Air Force (RAF)
as a tactical-reconnaissance aircraft and fighter-bomber. The addition of
the Rolls-Royce Merlin to the P-51B/C model transformed the Mustang's performance at altitudes
above 15,000 ft, giving it a performance that matched or bettered the
majority of the Luftwaffe's fighters at altitude.
The definitive version, the P-51D, was powered by the Packard V-1650-7, a
license-built version of the Rolls-Royce Merlin 60 series two-stage
two-speed supercharged engine, and armed with six .50 caliber (12.7 mm) M2
Browning machine guns.
From late 1943, P-51Bs (supplemented by P-51Ds from mid-1944) were used by
the USAAF's Eighth Air Force to escort bombers in raids over Germany, while
the RAF's 2 TAF and the USAAF's Ninth Air Force used the Merlin-powered Mustangs as fighter-bombers,
roles in which the Mustang
helped ensure Allied air superiority in 1944.
The P-51 was also in service with Allied air forces in the North African,
Mediterranean and Italian theatres, and saw limited service against the
Japanese in the Pacific War. During World War II, Mustang pilots claimed 4,950 enemy
aircraft shot down.
At the start of Korean War, the Mustang was the main fighter of the
United Nations until jet fighters such as the F-86 took over this role; the
Mustang then became a
specialized fighter-bomber. Despite the advent of jet fighters, the Mustang remained in service with
some air forces until the early 1980s. After World War II and the Korean
War, many Mustangs were
converted for civilian use, especially air racing.

Spitfire OUV. A Truly Emotional Start-Up. www.ml407.co.uk
Nick Grace bought the 2 seat Spitfire in 1979 in a dismantled state and
after 5 years of work took off with his wife Carolyn on their first flight.
Apart from the substantial task of general re-assembly the fuselage and
wings were essentially as they left the factory but a large amount of the
work involved stripping back to bare metal and re-riveting after treatment
with modern anticorrosives which is why OUV is still operational today with
no corrosion. Tragically Nick was killed in a car accident in 1988 but his
widow continues to fly OUV. This short clip is taken from the film "Perfect
Lady" which covers the full story of OUV's restoration. It and other videos
are available from Carolyn's website with all profits going to maintain the
Spitfire in flying condition.

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 low pass engine SOUND!
Listen to the engine sound of this beauty. This is a DC-3 / C-47A Dakota.
It was used by Icelandair flying with passengers from 1946-1972. Flying
domestic flights in Iceland and Greenland. From 1973-2006 it was used
spraying fertilizers in the highlands of Iceland. In 2006 it was painted
in modern Icelandair livery. This DC-3 is airworthy and owned by a DC-3
friends club in Iceland. In this video it made some nice lowpasses at this
small airshow in Tungubakkar, Iceland in 2006.
