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!

A Ride on the B17 'Nine O Nine'
A Ride on the Collings Foundation's WWII Era B-17 Bomber 'Nine O Nine' at
Moffett Field, CA. This plane is a replica of the original B17 nine o'
nine. Thanks to Alex for the Excellent Still Photos. See more of his work
B-17 Engine Startup and Takeoff
This is a video of "Aluminum Overcast," a World War II B-17 bomber, taken
on April 11, 2003 as the engines were being fired up, followed by taxi and
takeoff. I truly love the sound of radial engines!! The location is Wiley
Post Airport in Oklahoma City, OK.
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 !

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
B-17G Flying Fortress engine start-up and taxi
EAA's B-17G Flying Fortress "Aluminum Overcast" starting 2-1-3-4 engines
and taxiing out, shot from very close range without zoom so you can really
hear those Wright R-1820 Cyclones rumble.
The high-pitched sound before number 2 engine is started at the beginning
is the starter, once it engages, the pilot counts 10 prop blades and hits
the primer switch until the engine catches.
