I can remember a lot of 3350 engine starts. Sometimes a few big bangs. I wonder if a V-12 is easier? The 3350's start was fairly complex with both hands in use and hoping the throttle setting was correct.

Never started a prop engine from a full feather.

Wonder if the XP-82 had potentially better fighter performance that the latest P-38's?

Regards from Tucson,

Dux, yesterday 86 degrees, today only 76 degrees. Down to 56 at night because of low dew point I assume.

Oh, I dunno, probably so, I always thought that it flew like an A-26. But I always told people that asked that the P-38 and the P-40s "converted gas to noise".

best, randy
