Thaddeus Kosciuszko Posted August 16, 2014 Share #1 Posted August 16, 2014 I was surprised at the sound of the engines. While they were loud, it was almost as if the rpm's were so low the four huge engines were almost murmuring instead of roaring. I found myself thinking if they don't increase the engine revs that thing will fall out of the sky. I suspect the pilot, though, knew very well what he was doing and was flying as economically as possible to burn the least fuel and prolong engine life. Marvelous to watch - incredible to imagine men flying such a machine into battle.
