Incredible what avgas will do on hot pipes - what a flame show.

The only thing I ever saw with counter rotating props was a Russian TU-95 Bear-D and it was closer than I really wanted it to be.

I did a little digging on this engine / propeller combination, and found the Brits were experimenting with counter rotating props too. How about that!

My boys 7 1/2 and 6 are addicted to learning about old airplanes. I will have to show them this. We just saw the flight of the first restored PBJ at the Camarillo Airport in CA. Amazing to watch!
