Cool little video. For some of the comments about the propeller appearing
to warp.... The prop seems to be warping and bending because of the camera
frame rate. In other words the camera that recorded this had a higher frame
rate so it appears it's barely rotating. If the camera had shot it at 24
frames per second it would be blurred like we're used to seeing it.

Very nice video! Congrats! What kind of APU do you use? The original V-32
2-cylinder gasoline engine? Tks. Greetings from Brasil.

The individual speaking before the B-29 engine "fire up" mentioned it was
built by Dodge. That was at the Dodge-Chicago engine plant during WWII
where now the Tootsie-Roll plant exists and Ford City shopping center.

Sounds like the APU could use a muffler.

Автор brayden ramsey ( назад)

little bit there

I'm glad to hear that Doc is back in the shade and being worked on.

Sounds like WWII .... awesome. Just for giggles & brandy, I was with the
Army in mid 90's, briefly at Pine Bluff Arsenal, & took on a volunteer
assignment to coordinate between the U.S. Army & the CAF to give them our
support for an air show ... generators, communication, security, etc. I was
rewarded with an honorary captain certificate & cap of the "Ghost Squadron"
& a surprise phone call 3 weeks later for a flight from Texas to Illinois
aboard Fifi.

Cool look of amputated propeller blade stumps

Mu guess was the static test is done with the engine at idle, had the
throttle been left wide open I think it could have overheated

Superb piece of history- what a sound.

Автор TheDisasterousDoobs ( назад)
is that tiny propeller just so it has airflow so tt doesnt overheat?

This engine wasn't going back into the airframe.

Any updates as to Doc's progress ? , seems to have fallen off of the

Автор bigman55434 ( назад)
The engine is cold, and it is going back into an airplane (meaning it is
airworthy). Why in the hell would they beat on it without warming it up
properly? I love the dumbasses that make comments like "why didn't they get
it off idle"...

Автор ppsjsh ( назад)
disappointed, i thought he was goin to open her up full thortle, not just
idle for 4 mins

Автор goropeza101 ( назад)
Its been done! The legendary Republic P47 Thunderbolt! The WW2 fighter that
made America proud! Still holds the record as the fastest radial-piston
engine aircraft at speeds over400mph,consider its 70 plus year old

It will fly again!

Автор jdoggybizzle ( назад)
built by Dodge motor company? No wonder they had reliability problems from
the beginning

Автор badmoonryzn ( назад)
WOW! What a great sound. I remember flying on one of the Constellations and
hearing those wonderful engines all the way from Indy to LAX. We stopped
somewhere and changed planes. I was only 5 but I will never forget that
wonderful sound when those engines were started up one by one and then
hearing them under a load for take-off. I was so lucky, as my pop worked
for the FAA and we flew often. I got to go up in many airplanes. It is so
quiet now in the airliners of today. Thanks for the video!

How is the bottom cylinder lubbricated? It seems like the oil would drip
down into the combustion chamber.

Can't wait to see Doc in the air with FIFI !

When shooting these things, turn off the "shutter" feature in your camera
for a much more natural effect. The shutter is causing a stroboscopic
effect which (seems to) stop motion or (worse) making things seem to go
backwards. Just a hint for all your wanna be historical film/video makers
out there!

Автор crazyfvck ( назад)
@BronzeGiant Yeah.. It does make them look pretty weird.

Автор Steve Prange ( назад)
I REALLY do not like what digital cameras do with propellers.....

Автор mjmikelson ( назад)
Pretty sure the APU provides the power to start the motors spinning too, no
battery out there's going to provide enough electricity to do that.

Автор Kirk Conway ( назад)
Incredible , 3350's are really something, to hear and watch run,

Автор cs512tr ( назад)
nice, was waiting to hear it at full rpm or so still awesome :)

Автор Thomas Cox ( назад)
uhmmm it looked as if the propellers were bent, i guess not then, i hope it
flys once again!!!!!

@vabch82 FIFI has been grounded for some years now but she now has 4 brand
new engines and will return to flight once testing is done

@BlueWaterBoat Hey! Watch your language!

Автор BlueWaterBoat ( назад)
@ponkkaa Its also referred to as reticulation.

Автор ponkkaa ( назад)
@Milstar73 Prop reversal is an optical illusion caused by the camera's
shutter frame rate. Try moving your hand back and forth rapidly in front of
a fan blade. the blade will look like it stops and starts.

Wright Cyclones are my favorite...listen to that sound! :o)

sounds bad ass, hay put that in my truck lol

That is the plan. I think there might be some $ issues right now. I sure

Автор Bergstaller01 ( назад)
I cant remember if the APU is a 2 stroke or a 4 stroke engine.
