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!

FW190 A5 BMW801 Engine startup
FHC's newly arrived FW190A5 circa 1943 has been assembled and the BMW 801
radial engine fires for the first time at FHC's Paine Field location in
ROLLS ROYCE merlins
In 1936, the Air Ministry had a requirement for a new fighter aircraft with
airspeeds that would eventually have to be over 300 mph (480 km/h).
Fortunately, two designs had been developed entirely as private venture
exercises: the Hawker Hurricane and Supermarine Spitfire. Both were
designed around the PV-12 instead of the Kestrel, and were the only British
modern fighters to have been so developed. Production contracts for both
aircraft were let in 1936. The PV-12 was instantly catapulted to the top of
the supply chain and became the Merlin.
Early Merlins were considered to be rather unreliable, but Rolls soon
introduced a superb reliability-improvement programme to improve matters.
This consisted of taking random engines from the end of assembly line and
running them continuously at full power until they failed. Each was then
dismantled to find out which part had failed, and that part was redesigned
to be stronger. After two years of this, the Merlin had matured into one of
the most reliable aero engines in the world, and could be run at full power
for eight-hour bombing missions with no problems.
As it turned out, the Peregrine saw use in only two aircraft, the Westland
Whirlwind and the Gloster F9/37. Although the Peregrine appeared to be a
satisfactory design, it was never allowed to mature; Rolls-Royce's priority
was troubleshooting the Merlin. The Vulture was fitted to the Hawker
Tornado and Avro Manchester, but proved unreliable owing to big-end
failures caused by lubrication problems. With the Merlin itself soon
pushing into the 1,500 hp (1,100 kW) range, the Peregrine and Vulture were
both cancelled in 1943. upgrades to the Merlin were the result of
ever-increasing octane ratings in the aviation fuel available from the US,
and ever more efficient Supercharger
designs. At the start of the war the engine ran on the then-standard 87
octane aviation spirit and
The next major version was the XX which ran on 100 octane fuel. This
allowed it to be run at higher manifold pressures, which were achieved by
increasing the "Boost" from the
centrifugal type Supercharger. The
result was that the otherwise similar engine delivered 1,300 hp (970 kW).
The process continued, with later versions running on further-increased
octane ratings, delivering higher and higher power ratings. By the end of
the war the "little" engine was delivering over 1,600 hp (1,200 kW) in
common versions, and as much as 2,070 hp (1,544 kW) in the Merlin 130/131
versions used on the de Havilland Hornet. The Merlin was running on 150
Octane fuel by the time it was used in the Lancaster bomber. This high
octane rating was achieved by large quantities of lead anti-knocking agent,
so much in fact, that the engine cowlings around the Exhaust outlets were usually heavily stained
with it. It had to be regularly removed for aerodynamic, not to mention
The Merlin's lack of direct fuel injection meant that both Spitfires and
Hurricanes were, unlike the contemporary Bf-109E, unable to nose down into
a deep dive. This meant the Luftwaffe fighters could 'bunt' into a
high-power dive to escape attack, leaving the Spitfire spluttering behind
as its fuel was forced by negative 'g' out of the carburettor. RAF fighter
pilots soon learned to 'half-roll' their aircraft before diving to pursue
their opponents. The use of uninjected carburettors was calculated to give
a higher specific power output, due to the lower temperature, and hence the
greater density, of the fuel/air mixture, compared to injected systems.
"Miss Shilling's orifice" (invented in March 1941 by a female engineer
named Shilling), a holed diaphragm fitted across the float chambers, went
some way towards curing the fuel starvation in a dive. Further improvements
were introduced throughout the Merlins, with injection introduced in 1943.
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.

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.
