B-29 "FiFi" Engine Start Up
The B-29 "FiFi" prepares to leave Elkhart, Indiana, the morning after the 1993 Elkhart Air Show.
Blackstone Model DB 12hp
Vertical diesel Blackstone producing 12hp at 850 rpm. After being in storage for 40 years this is the first run, on a temporary water tank. The only work done was to clean and flush the engine and put fresh oil in. The injector could do with a service but otherwise she is in excellent condition.
