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!

DEUTZ V12 DIESEL MODEL A12L614 YEAR 1954
Here is a running example of the very first V12 model DEUTZ made, dating
back to 1954. They only made this A12L614 model for 6 years. It is 16
litres in capacity and air cooled. The design dates back to before WW2 but
their construction could not commence until Germany was rebuilt.
The Deutz V12 are very rare and this is one of the oldest running examples
I am running modified airfilters and Exhausts.

BOTH of Maurice Hammond's wonderful P51 Mustang restorations. Marinell &
Janie, starting up and taking off from Hardwick Airfield in Norfolk UK.
Wonderful Merlin Engine sounds and awesome head on takeoff footage.
This was filmed for the Ridley Scott YouTube project "Life in A Day", thus
the slightly oddball questions included - they were set within the project.
Maurice and his family & helpers do a great deal of charity work besides
keeping his amazing collection of planes in the air, so please support them
whenever you can!
The North American Aviation P-51 Mustang was an American long-range,
single-seat fighter and fighter-bomber used during World War II, the Korean
War and other conflicts. The Mustang was conceived, designed and
built by North American Aviation (NAA) in response to a specification
issued directly to NAA by the British Purchasing Commission.
The prototype NA-73X airframe was rolled out on 9 September 1940, 102 days
after the contract was signed and, with an engine installed, first flew on
The Mustang was originally
designed to use the Allison V-1710 engine, which had limited high-altitude
performance. It was first flown operationally by the Royal Air Force (RAF)
as a tactical-reconnaissance aircraft and fighter-bomber. The addition of
the Rolls-Royce Merlin to the P-51B/C model transformed the Mustang's performance at altitudes
above 15,000 ft, giving it a performance that matched or bettered the
majority of the Luftwaffe's fighters at altitude.
The definitive version, the P-51D, was powered by the Packard V-1650-7, a
license-built version of the Rolls-Royce Merlin 60 series two-stage
two-speed supercharged engine, and armed with six .50 caliber (12.7 mm) M2
Browning machine guns.
From late 1943, P-51Bs (supplemented by P-51Ds from mid-1944) were used by
the USAAF's Eighth Air Force to escort bombers in raids over Germany, while
the RAF's 2 TAF and the USAAF's Ninth Air Force used the Merlin-powered Mustangs as fighter-bombers,
roles in which the Mustang
helped ensure Allied air superiority in 1944.
The P-51 was also in service with Allied air forces in the North African,
Mediterranean and Italian theatres, and saw limited service against the
Japanese in the Pacific War. During World War II, Mustang pilots claimed 4,950 enemy
aircraft shot down.
At the start of Korean War, the Mustang was the main fighter of the
United Nations until jet fighters such as the F-86 took over this role; the
Mustang then became a
specialized fighter-bomber. Despite the advent of jet fighters, the Mustang remained in service with
some air forces until the early 1980s. After World War II and the Korean
War, many Mustangs were
converted for civilian use, especially air racing.
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

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.

A Merlin engine built out of two wrecks. It originally powered a twin

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.
