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.
Focke-Wulf FW 190 WWII Fighter Startup. BIG Backfire, Yow!
This is an engine startup of Rudy Frasca's new-build Flug Werk-built
Focke-Wulf FW 190 at the Planes of Fame Museum in Chino, California. A
very impressive replica of the WWII FW-190, this aircraft was built in
Germany and was assembled by Matt Nightingale in California with quite a
few innovative features (i.e. newly designed oil coolers, for one). There
are several other of these aircraft flying today by lucky owners. Quite an
impressive aircraft, just beautifully built and it includes a number of
original WWII Focke-Wulf components. And it sounds great too! This
aircraft is flown quite often and it is currently intended for it to be
shown at the Planes of Fame's annual airshow, Oshkosh and the Reno Air
Races in 2011. Nice!
Skyraider Engine Start-up and Taxi
Douglas A-1H Skyraider, a Korea- and Vietnam-era carrier-launched ground
attack aircraft, starts up for a demonstration flight at the Planes of Fame
Museum (Chino, CA)'s monthly event on 6 March 2010.
World's only flying ORIGINAL Fw-190
Paul Allen's Flying Heritage Collection is home to the only flying original
Fw-190 which is powered by the only working original BMW-801. It's been
flying for nearly two years now and this is the majority of footage I have
of the aircraft. This includes its debut flight in 2011 with its
hangar-mate Bf-109E-3, which is also an original, with its DB-601. Other
footage includes flights with a pair of American fighters, the P-51D Mustang and P-47D Thunderbolt,
both also part of the Flying Heritage Collection. Sit back and enjoy the
sound of history as this machine lives and breathes.
Focke Wulf 190 AWESOME SOUND !!!
FW190 Engine startup, fly and taxing at Breitscheid Airshow 2010.
This FW190 is a 1:1 new build replica (almost 98% like the original
aircraft, exept the engine).
The parts came from "Flugwerk" as a kit and "Meier Motors" put it together
and made it airworthy.
These new FW190 replicas were sold with a Russian/Chinese ASh-82 14 cyl.
radial engine, which was a good match for the rare BMW801 14 cyl. radial
engines at a much lower cost. The replicas were designed with a new 3-blade
prop, but one of the first examples crashed from a failure in the electric
prop control. The 4-blade was a matched prop from the Tu-2 that was
substituted while the problem with the new 3-blade was fixed. The 3-blade
prop is now back in use.
This aircraft is now flying in the USA.
P-38 Engine Startup

My camera's small mic was being blown out by the noise of the engine and
FW190 Werk Nummer 173056 First Flight
After ten and a half years of restoration, Fw190A-8, werk nummer 173056,
took to the air on Sunday 2011, October 9, for the first time in 68 years
since wrecked in a French rail yard during the late years of WWII. Owned
by Don and Linda Hansen's engineering company of Baton Rouge, Louisiana,
and flown by test pilot Klaus Plasa from Munich, Germany, two flights were
made that day, the first a short flight to test flight characteristics and
systems, and a second flight to include maneuvers and stalls shown in this
video. Additional test flights will be made to expand the flight envelope
of the aircraft and to check systems reliability.
Tiger Tank 131 " Hand Crank Engine Start Up "
The inertia starter " Schwungmasse " works by rotating a heavy mass at
speed, once it reaches 60rpm a lever is pulled below the hand cranking arm,
this pushes the drive pinion onto the fly wheel, making the engine rotate
and start. These men starting the Tiger are very experienced tank
mechanics, who volunteer to keep Tiger 131 working.
FHC Luftwaffe Day - Focke Wulf 190 A-5 and Messerschmitt Bf-109E-3 Emil
Visit my blog at: http://fight2flyphoto.blogspot.com/
Saturday, August 6, 2011 was a historic day in aviation history as the
worlds only flying original Focke-Wulf 190 flew in formation with one of
only two airworthy Messerschmitt Bf-109 E-3s. The Focke-Wulf 190A-5
features its original BMW motor and was restored to the exact condition it
was in during its service in World War Two. This was the first time these
two aircraft were in the sky together since WWII.
Both of these aircraft belong to Paul Allen's Flying Heritage Collection in
Everett, Washington, home of the flying warbirds.
Video was shot with Canon VIXIA HG20
