Remark Photographer
G-BLKA / WR410 (cn 431) Just a typical start-up for this Venom's De Havilland Ghost engine as it burns off excess fuel, overseen by members of the Vintage Aircraft Team, before leaving Cranfield for an air display. Ex Swiss Air Force J-1790.

What a ... hot start !!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu June 18, 2009:
HP fuel cock opened too early or too quickly puts excess fuel in the jet pipe which catches fire when the engine does light up. If engine fails to light then a 'wet start' is the result. I remember it with some nostalgia but can't remember doing it myself. Bruce Spurr (ex.5, XI, 68, 151, CFS etc.)

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue September 5, 2006:
Cool shot!! Did you know the mark from that burning is still there today!

A visitor from United States posted Tue April 18, 2006:
Very nice shot! "Surplus fuel" is an oxymoron though!

A visitor from Belgium posted Sat April 8, 2006:
Must be cool to see a start up like that! And for an old jet, the grass seems smoking harder than the engine itself. I think there was at least one unhappy guy about it and that must have been the gardner :)

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun January 29, 2006:
Fantastically clear and exciting. Poor gardener!!
