I'm thinking that isn't what it's suppose to do. It got the attention of the tug driver too!
Nice catch.

i think because of the size restriction on uploading... vs embedding some of the clarity is lost.


Equipment: Canon PowerShot A650IS (semi retired) and Canon Powershot G10 (primary) and Rebel XT 350D w/18-55mm kit lens and Quanterey 18-200mm-- www.youtube.com/alexan​der1485 (external link) (has links to some of my pictures on the main page)

I am told by an ex flight engineer that it is a very common event for the Curtiss Wright engines fitted to the Super Constellation, to flame up so to speak, on start up.

It is not terribly uncommon to see things like this on large radials. Pretty cool to watch and exciting if you don't expect it though!
