Air starter or electric, Why a separate fuel nozzle for starting, Time from start to full power?
Since there wasn't a High Quality rendition to be found on YouTube regarding this short but explicitly epic martial arts combat between two outstanding fighters (you know who they are), I decided to upload it there for better viewing and improved quality. Enjoy. 'Kiss of The Dragon' is 2001 film distributed by 20th Century Fox and produced by StudioCanal and EuropaCorp, and the song 'Mystikal Fever' is performed by Mystikal and is a courtesy of Jive Records. I don't claim ownership of either material, whether it's the footage or the music, and have solely uploaded it for entertainment purposes. No copyright infringement intended.
We look at the temperature and pressure of the air as it is processed by a turbojet engine / gas generator. Bonus winter biking footage of the trail where I broke my bike.
If you want to know how to install lockwire, this video reveals the details and tricks. You will know how to use the tools, and be able to do it with no special tools at all. Race car, race bike, airplane, jet, rocket, or road warrior ... whatever you're working on, this is how to lockwire the fasteners.
A look at the components of a typical jet engine lube system, and a simplified explanation of how they all work together. We use examples of each component from several different engines, and we go through some hand-made diagrams...
Two turbine engine powered race boats do some testing on the lake. These boats normally race on river courses, so a nice calm lake is a piece of cake, but we're just doing a quick test of the setup before heading off to race. Maximum speed is not the goal here, but both boats went just over 125 MPH on this day.
A look at the fuel nozzles from our Orenda Type 14 turbojet. Then we test one ! And since we want to test the flow pattern of jet fuel... we are running jet fuel through it. Real Jet A. We have a large tank of it that we get filled by an airport tanker truck.
A very detailed training video that will give you the ability to repair compressor blades in a jet engine to aircraft standards. I have blended over 20 thousand compressor blades.. and I want to share what I've learned. If it bores you, then working on jets may not be the best career choice for you ... Because you will be dealing with the likes of Keith Boyne; Scottish madman, bowery boy, and turbine overhaul superhero.
How do fighter jets avoid fuel starvation when they zip around the sky?
