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!
