Waking the Beast

JO Holton Dedication

If someone woke you up, you would be grumpy too. Starting this Wright Twin Cyclone’s 14 cylinders is fun to watch as it kicks and backfires during the startup process. Here you see the co-pilot watch the engine as each cylinder comes in line until they all are working in unison.  Once all is running smoothly the smoke disappears, the engine settles down then more power is added and the plane comes alive.
