Here’s a whole pile of Youtube clips, some of the many I’ve found interesting, of old airplanes starting up and flying.
|Boeing C-97. The smokescreen capability was a built-in feature.||Fairchild C-123.|
|Lancaster Bomber. There were a few passenger aircraft powered by the Merlin engines, but they didn’t have a long service life (see if you can guess why)||Another of the Bristol Frightner, this is apparently quite a recent clip.|
|DHC-4 Caribou. The Australian Airforce had a dozen or more of these, they just retired the last one a year ago.||The Pommie white elephant, with eight radial engines it must have been extremely noisy.|
