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.

299 viewsAirline: Poly FiberType: DC-3Registration: N28AAAirport: inflightCity: NewnanState: GeorgiaCountry: USADate Taken: August 2009Scenic inflight view of Georgia out the forward window of the Gooneybird. You can see the red fuel caps on the inboard wing section. Also not easily seen is the landing light panel near center of this photo. This panel prevents the landing light from shining into the crews eyes when they look back to see. Another recent addition to a few propliners is the placement of a convex mirror on the panel to allow the pilot to see any evidence of an increasing engine or exhaust stack fire.
