A little bit about it here:

I use to be in the aviation field. I’ve worked on radial engines and turbine engines. Just never on the same airframe!  That was really cool, thanks for posting it.

Nothing like the growl of a radial at full power as it streaks by you.

Oh yes, the sweet sound of whistling death that scared Germans senseless.....

Yep. That was the sound that hell was coming from above. Truly amazing aircraft.........from the 40's. Let's hear it for American (yes, yes and allied) engineering.

Sure, the Brits had the genius idea to put the Merlin in it, but then Packard in typical American fashion told them "hold my beer!", and the rest as they say, is history. :thumbup:

The North American P-51D Mustang is away and by far the sexiest aircraft ever built in the history of mankind

V12 Ferrari engines sound like angels choking liberals 

 

Not plane noises but damn!

Dammit Greg. Now I gotta go change my pants cause of the wet spot they got in them.

Those Italian 12's have a sound all of their own. Awesome!
