Forwarded message - From: Vintage Wings

Ladies and Gentlemen Aviators

Aircraft Preservation : www.vintagewings.ca: The Moment - First Hucks Start in 70 Years

Inline image 1The Huck starter was also a standard equipment with the Belgian Air Force before 1940.
See also the pictures of Stampe SV-4 CG-OMD.

 Forwarded message From: Dave Poissant




The 'Hucks Starter' is news to me; some of our veterans may remember hearing of them years ago.  Quite an impressive feat of genius, engineering and machining. http://www.vintagewings.ca/VintageNews/Stories/tabid/116/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/381/language/en-CA/The-Moment--First-Hucks-Start-in-70-Years.aspx
There is now a working model at Vintage Wings of Canada.
