Poor Man's Wind Tunnel - P-51 Aircraft Scoop tuft testing on a Glasair
Unexpected airflow during tuft testing and development of a P-51 type scoop on a Glasair. The incoming shaft of air remains in a tight straight group, holding the same size and shape as the scoop inlet until impacting the radiator face. Watch the air flow tumble and actually go backwards. Wind tunnel air entered the scoop at 175 MPH. The engine for this aircraft is a Subaru six cylinder EG33 from a SVX sports car.
