B-24 Flight Gallery


The #3 engine has started!

If you look very closely, you can see a little bit of smoke highlighted by the tail of the aircraft.

This was only the second B-24 flight I'd seen (the other one being one of Witchcraft's flights). Compared to the large number of B-17 flights I've seen, I was impressed by the lack of smoke when Witchcraft started her engines (although there was a small amount of smoke noticeable). Although I mostly had my eye in the viewfinder, I did not remember seeing any smoke whatsoever when Diamond Lil started her engines, so there must have been very little smoke indeed.
