Sabre Jet Engine: first start
The first start and initial test run of the Orenda type 14 turbojet that we have been working on for almost a year now... you and me! It's been a lot of work, and now it's all on the line as we crank this baby up, hit the sparks and spray those combustors with Jet A. It was an exciting and Exhausting day... A special note: this is not a hot start, but fairly typical of the older generations of turbojets to have flames shoot out the tailpipe on startup. Index of all videos: The video response is from Burning Man participant Kunal Dovedy, and the engine section he used is the exact one featured in my video "dropped into a turbine engine".
