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.

Spitfire MK XVI - First Engine Run in 17 Years!
---EXTRA CLIP--- See the Spitfire start up and do a taxi run in this other clip on Kermit's channel ... https://youtu.be/8OydGSADtYw ------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Spitfire MK XVI rolled out of the hangar for its first engine run in 17 years! I had been flying it after we opened Fantasy of Flight, but there was like an AD on the landing gear bolts and we grounded it. It took several years to get the proper bolts but by then we'd moved on to other things and it just sat. Well we've finally gotten back on it, and here's the first engine run we've done on her in 17 years. At first it didn't want to start. The mixture control is not marked on the throttle quadrant and I may have flooded it . . . so we came back later for another try, and we got it running. Here's the clip. We still have a bit of work to finish painting the newly covered tail feathers and hooking them all up. Also, Andy's been dealing with some leaky undercarriage legs and it seems we have a leak in the air system as the brake pressure didn't come up as fast as it should. Hopefully, we'll get all that sorted out and we'll be able to get it flying soon. KERMIT WEEKS Want more of the Spitfire?

For more videos please take a look on my Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1195002147190724/ 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! 9 Zylinder Sternmotor Er stammt aus einem PZL-104 "Wilga 35" Flugzeug.

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!





🇩🇪 Tiger Tank " Hand Crank Engine Start Up "
The hand crank starter, is the recommended way of starting a Tiger in cold weather conditions, it also has an electric starter. The hand crank turns a heavy flywheel at the rear of the engine, when it reaches a high rotation speed, a pin is pushed or pulled, this connects the spinning flywheel to the crank shaft, which spins up the Pistons thus starting the engine.
