Superb shot. One of the most gorgeous aircraft ever built showing she still has the right stuff! If only we could hear it too.

Classic example of a radial engine start when gas & oil accummulates in the cylinders. This is typical of radial engines and at night in full rich mixture, its a sight to behold. In this day and age, only us older people can appreciate the beauty of propliner aviation of yesteryear.

Rare photo of fire out of the exhaust of a radial on startup. Spectacular.

Interesting startup. I'd be scared for the rest of the flight after that however.

The term "fire it up" has just taken on a whole new meaning. Or maybe not. Excellent photo btw.
