    For those of you who have never heard a 1650-7 Merlin in prime health warm up - enjoy. Cranking at 1200 rpm then revving to ~2200 before shut down..

    If he was going out he probably should run it up briefly to ~ 2800-3000 rpm to clean the plugs.

    Done at our 355th FG Reunion at Davis Monthan April 2008... done in Noble Peterson's(pilot) Bob Coleman (crew chief) YFM Dakota Kid colors - 358FS/355FG

    I can't image what several hundred of them must have sounded like.

    Dave - that first belch of smoke with all the WWII vet crew chiefs watching closely was a sight to see and not evident in this pic sequence.. was something to watch.

    The original crew chief and pilot of YFM - Coleman and Peterson - were there..

    Noble Peterson paased away about 8 months ago but Bob Coleman still sharp as a tack. He had one abort from September 1943 through May 1945 maintaining both the early Jugs and the early 'tempermental' Mustangs all the way through the P-51D-30's.
