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!
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.
Two 9 Cylinder Radial Engines - Start and Run - Sternmotor
Der erste Ausschnitt aus meiner DVD Stationärmotorentreffen Burkhardtsdorf
2011 ( 50 Miinuten, siehe Homepage )
Start und lauf von zwei Sternmotoren.
Zuerst läuft der kleinere Wilga Sternmotor mit 10L Hubraum.
Anschliessend wird der Antonov Sternmotor mit 30 Litern Hubraum und 1000PS
vorbereitet und gestartet. Das war ein eindrucksvolles Erlebnis. Die
Lautstärke ist unvorstellbar!
First start a Wilga Radial Engine. After this run comes the Antonov Star
Engine, a very impressive engine!

Sabre Jet Engine: first start
The first start and initial test run of the Orenda type 14 turbojet that we have been working on for almost a
year now... you and me!
It's been a lot of work, and now it's all on the line as we crank this baby
up, hit the sparks and spray those combustors with Jet A.
It was an exciting and Exhausting
A special note: this is not a hot start, but fairly typical of the older
generations of turbojets to have flames
shoot out the tailpipe on startup.
The video response is from Burning Man participant Kunal Dovedy, and the
engine section he used is the exact one featured in my video "dropped into
a turbine engine".
Merlin V12 part 1 start up
A Merlin engine built out of two wrecks. It originally powered a twin
engine Mosquito. Just the thing to have in your shed!
1909 Cadillac First Drive First Start in 79 Years
This is a follow up to the earlier 1909 Cadillac first start. Bob took his
first drive in his 1909 Cadillac Model 30 touring September 1, 2013. He has
owned this car for and been working on the restoration on and off for 46
years. The last time this Cadillac drive under its own power was in 1933,
80 years ago.
There are still some bugs to work out, but it moves!.
Update, this is the first actual drive for Bob's Cadillac. For the original
first start of the engine see the other video at
