391 viewsAirline: NEPTUNE AVIATIONType: P2V-5FRegistration: N96264Airport: LMTCity: KLAMATH FALLSState: OREGONCountry: USADate Taken: AUGUST 9, 2012Nothing like a clean starting R-3350 to give you an idea how inefficient the engine oil usage is on these large radial engines. The jet engine on each wing has a hydraulic driven inlet door that closes when not in use so the turbines do not windmill inflight causing bearing failure.

364 viewsAirline: Neptune AviationType: Lockheed P2V NeptuneRegistration: N807NAAirport: RDMCity: RedmondState: OregonCountry: USADate Taken: 2009Neptune Inc. along with Butler aircraft are about the only heavy piston aircraft operators still fighting forest fires throughout the US. The pods seen under the wings are actually small jet engines which are used on takeoff only. The jet engines burn on 115/145 Avgas. The mechanics called them Westinghouse defuelers.
The two radials are 18 cylinder, aircooled, Wright R3350-32WA engines, rated at 2,800 horsepower, driving Hamilton Standard hydromatic propellers. A unique aircraft in that on takeoff you hear the radial engine and the Westinghouse J34-WE-36 turbojet engines. Sounds like two aircraft in unison!

Quito is a city filled with sounds of horns, whistles, and old screaming aircraft engines. Still amazing to hear the crackle of those 737-200 engines as they power for takeoff. I remember that sound I used to hear when I was a child visiting my grandparents in the neighborhoods of Chicago Midway airport.
