F4U Corsair "Whistling Death" Flight Demonstration !
This is a compilation of clips of the Planes of Fame Museum's Corsair
(Chino, California) and includes some clips of the Palm Springs Air
Museum's own Corsair. Man, this thing just scoots, BIG TIME! Wow, just
Listen to the 2,000 horsepower generated by the
2,800 cubic inches of the supercharged, 18 cylinder Pratt & Whitney R-2800!
You'll see during the flybys why the Japanese called this fighter the
This aircraft just leaps off the runway in just a few seconds, and
remember, the manifold pressure used today for takeoff with 100-octane
low-lead fuel is not anywhere near what could be used with the wartime,
130-octane+ fuel. Very impressive!
B17 Bomber Start up and Take off
I decided to set all three of my cameras on HD this time and set them at
different zooms to film this B-17 starting up. I realize I all ready
showed this taking off but if I didn't put that in the video over time I'd
just get a bunch of complaints that I should have shown it taking off or
I usually don't use my Casio EXF1's to film HD with but they actually work
quite well. My Panasonic has very good image stabilization compared to
the Casio's. I layered the clips from the three cameras in my editor and
sync'd them up. I picked the best audio of the three clips.
Joey from LivinBoB (YT channel from my home town) was covering the
Memorial Day flight and was filming a news piece for the TV station he
works for. He got a ride in the bomber in the nose-gunner position- but
almost missed the flight.
You will enjoy this video ONLY if you are really into the mechanics of
large WWII era piston aircraft engines. You need high quality sound for
this. Nothing like a 2100 horsepower aircraft engine
DC-3 low pass engine SOUND!
Listen to the engine sound of this beauty. This is a DC-3 / C-47A Dakota.
It was used by Icelandair flying with passengers from 1946-1972. Flying
domestic flights in Iceland and Greenland. From 1973-2006 it was used
spraying fertilizers in the highlands of Iceland. In 2006 it was painted
in modern Icelandair livery. This DC-3 is airworthy and owned by a DC-3
friends club in Iceland. In this video it made some nice lowpasses at this
small airshow in Tungubakkar, Iceland in 2006.
B-24 Liberator Flight Demo... Inside and Out !
Here's my compilation of video from my flights in the Collings Foundation
B-24J Liberator. Those flights were soooo much fun you would hardly believe
it ! You need to go for a ride on all their aircraft but as far as the
bombers, the B-24 is definitely the most interesting from the historical
standpoint as far as I am concerned (and also the loudest !). The aircraft
is flown with the waist gunner panels wide open to the elements (unlike the
waist gunner positions on the B-17 and B-25 which are enclosed with
Plexiglass [historically correct}). There is also a WHOLE lot of wind
blowing through that B-24 fuselage, quite unlike the B-17 and B-25. Enjoy
the video ! For the ULTIMATE thrill, take a flight in the Collings
Foundation P-51C dual-control Mustang where (depending on your
experience and ability), you can actually take control of the aircraft for
the majority of your flight. Simply unbelievable and a dream come true !
I've done it twice (see my other videos). Thanks !
