Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress - Jay Leno's Garage
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 !
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.

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.
