    • @BIGLOUBRUNO That's cool. If I knew him i'd be bugging his arse to come watch him start her up followed by a few fly-bys! There's absolutely nothing that compares to standing within 100ft of a jet starting up and taxiing off.

      I love all the old cold war jets, they have an eerie (pun intended) mystique and quality about them that most modern jets don't have.

  • The Electric Lightning started the same way. It uses iso-propyl nitrate which is a self oxidising fuel (IPN). It's injected into the (AVPIN) starter and ignited. The starter spins up and starts turning the main shaft through a gearbox. I think there's a vent for excess pressure on the starter which is what you see and hear.

    Theres a video on youtube of a lightning using its avpin starter

  • Because the UK is close to russia and eastern europe the time taken to get off the ground was needed to be very short much effort was put into aircraft and equipment to allow it to happen.
    Marshalls at Cambridge UK did some awesome work including self extracting plugs for parked aircraft so pilot could jump in start and roll whilst connecting helmet intercom etc.. also developed were external starters for "quick response" aircraft
