Sikorsky-Erickson Air Crane – ‘Incredible Hulk’ – Start up & Take Off

Actual Takeoff is at around 5:30, so fast forward to that point if you’re impatient.

Filmed after the Airshow when all the aircrafts and helicopters were leaving all at once. It pays to stick around after the airshow. In my case, literally.

    If you are an old timer and have ever watched 'Riptide' with the pink S-58T that has a pair of turbine engines in it listen close to the sound track.  That helicopter does not sound like turbines.  Radial engine sound was dubbed in.

    Raw power.  I worked on and with these beasts for about 10 years in the nineties and still love the sound of the old 1820!

    i was probably listening 20 times, this sound is just unbelieveable

    When you see the bulbous nose think 'radial'. I was expecting more smoke! These engines probably like laying flat better than being fully vertical… saves the bottom cylinders from flooding or fouling.

    Technical question:
    1] What is the clicking sound starting at 0:09?
    2] Is the sound at 0:15 that of the motor trying to turn the crankshaft?
    3] Also, do they have neutral gear in this helo? Because surely the engine was running before 0:37 when the rotors started moving…
