Knowledge Quiz for Warbird wiz
 
1 Attachment(s)
Alright guys, over the winter this forum became a little dry and some of the posts heated.

Time for some fun and knowledge.

How it works:

First question – How many blades had an F6F-5 Hellcat Propeller (for an example) – Then it’s your turn to answer. Then who ever asked the question name the next guy who asks the next question – and so forth.

Rules:
Only warbird related questions model or full scale.
Two part questions are allowed.
The time limit between announced winner and your question is 24hrs

Rule change Feb 26 2010

Alright here is my question:
Question #1
What is that and for what is it for?

It looks like a vacuum generator for vacuum powered flight instruments. Just my guess.

G-Pete,

It's a Flash surpressor for either a machine gun or cannon. Primarily used on night fighters, RAF Lanc gunners had them on their browning 303 machine guns to prevent blindness when firing the guns.

Is it from a planes engine or fueling system?

It's a blast tube for the nose of a P-38M night fighter.

Alright Bradley - you are the first with the right answer - this one fits 303, .30 and the .50 cal. The 20mm had larger ones.
We looking forward to your question...

Looks to be an Allison V-1710 used in such airplanes as the P-38, P-40 and others

RE: Knowledge Quiz for Warbird wiz
 
Dave,

You are correct on both counts, the other aircraft were the P-51A and P-39. You get to ask the next question.

THIS IS AN Allison V-1710-89/91 TO 12 cz. for P-38 P-39 P-40 AND P-63K

Name this engine and at least one aircraft it powered.

Hint: it wasn't a P-51

Dave,

You gave away the engine, it's a BMW-801 which went into the best German fighter the FW-190. The engine also went into different junkers aircraft to include Messerschmitt, Dornier, and Heinkle aircraft.

I always thought it was an RC B-24 he was killed in. I guess I will have to up-date my brain on that one.
