Oh, in 1986 I was stationed at Finthen Flug Platz, Maintz Germany and one day a half dozen of my fellow aviators when across the Rhine River to the grave site of the Baron von Richthofen, The Red Baron. He took along a bottle of schnapps and some shot glasses and toasted the Baron on his 94th birth day. The German civilians thought we were verrückt im Kopf.
And about a hundred feet away from his grave was the American section of American soldiers and family members who died during the occupation of 1918-1924. The French had the area west of the Rhine River while the Americans had the east side.

This is the old Finthen Flugplatz where I was stationed 1985-1988. During WWII it was a German night fighter base and was never attacked because we did not know it was there.
My officer was in the parachute tower of the left of the hanger. The top had been closed off but they use to inspect, clean, dry and repack parachutes there. They had hosts in the ceiling for four parachutes.

Oh, in the back ground is the City of Mainz. where Gutenberg had his printing press. They have two universities there and about 25,000 students. I had two co-eds that liven in the apartment under my town home.
One Sunday morning at about six a.m. I was getting coffee and there was one of the co-eds kissing her boy friend through the car window. She was only wearing her panties! When she turn to return to her apartment she noticed me and I toasted her with my coffee mug!
My next door neighbors use to sun themselves on their back balcony. If they had their towels on the rail I assumed them were sunning in the buff so I would wish them hello away from the our joint railing.
But it was not unusual for a young lady to go topless in a park or at the local schwimmbad. My 13 y/o daughter wanted to go swimming but she would not believe me until we got there. Then she wanted me to leave.

Both of 4-stroke engines that are heavier than the Deltahawk 2-stroke engine. But Jet fuel, like diesel fuel, has sufficient lubricity so as not to require adding oil to the fuel fix as used in gasoline powered 2-stroke engines.

The WWI era rotary engines,like used on the Fokker Triplane, used caster oil in the fuel mix so most of the pilots had chronic diarrhea! Poor Red Baron!!!

I'm sure you do. The Focke-Wulf and P-47 Thunderbolt had radial engines, and both were formidable aircraft.
Yes, but some of the FW109's had V12 engines. The WWI engines were not radial engines but rotary engines in that the propellers were rigidly mounted to the engine and the whole engine spun. They were all 2-stroke engines and their throttles were always full open all of the time. They would regulate the power but cutting (grounding out) the magnetos. It can be easily seen and heard, on this video.

Now this was the French version of the "rotary" engine.

Yep, they used caster oil as a lubricant which gave the pilots the shits!

And Jacques, this is a FW109 D9 which had a Jumo inverted V-12 water cooled engine. Please note the exhausts low and in a line. The radiator was up front.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Fw_190_D-9_...

.....the D series [FW190] was rarely used against the heavy-bomber raids, as the circumstances of the war in late 1944 meant that fighter-versus-fighter combat and ground attack missions took priority. A total of 1,805 D-9s were produced. Production started in August 1944.
With the D version the power plant was changed from the radial engine of earlier models to an in-line 12-cylinder inverted-Vee liquid-cooled engine. The Jumo 213A generated 1,750 PS (1,726 hp, 1,287 kW), and could produce 2,100 PS (2,071 hp, 1,545 kW) of emergency power.....

Now the Hawker Sea Fury also had a radial engine but it was a sleeve-valve engine. NO over-head poppet valves. Good power and light weight but it "was check the gas and fill the oil tank".

Bristol Centaurus
The Centaurus was the final development of the Bristol Engine Company's series of sleeve valve radial aircraft engines, an 18-cylinder, two-row design that eventually delivered over 3,000 hp (2,200 kW).[1] It was one of the largest piston aircraft engines to enter production, and was introduced into service use towards the end of World War II.

And this is how a sleeve-valve engine works;

Now, imaging a large 18 cylinder, two-row sleeve-valed radial engine.

Jacques, I have have said, I was raised in aviation, I have an IQ of 140 with an extremely high aptitude for mechanics.
In the old FAST (Flight Aptitude Test) I scored 430 out of 500. You needed 270 or higher to go to flight school. I did not realize how high a 430 was until after I returned from Vietnam and became a 20 year old instructor pilot and I started to go through student flight records. Out of over a thousand records I looked at only one guy had a higher FAST score than I did and he was one of my students.
In fact he was being fast tracked for the astronaut program and was the Army's second astronaut to go into space. I taught him how to fly helicopters as he was enroute to the Navy experimental test pilot (not the same as a maintenance test pilot) school, then an assignment at Edwards AFB before being assign to NASA.
In flight school I was number one in flight training but just above average in academics as I also have A.D.D. My class standing was 16 out of 114 so I was slotted to go to Medivac (AAMED) enroute to Vietnam but I bot bumped by another guy which left AAMOC (Aviation Maintenance Test Pilot) but they wanted someone who had actually turned recherche on aircraft so I went to Fort Sam Houston after Vietnam.
Oh, the gut who bumped me turned out to be a Maintenance pilot in a Medivac unit! He was across the runway from he at Long Binh Plantation.

I do notobut your high I.Q. score, but it does not sync with your political views and your lvoe of firearms. Most unusual.

As to me, I will spare you my I.Q. score and what one would have to know to embark on what it is I pursued. I did enjoy it, it was like going to school every day as one can learn so much living and working all over. I did humbly conclude that we are no better or worse than other nationalities, and vice versa, just different. VIVE LA DIFFÉRENCE.

I know you Libtards think we are still in Global Warming but I am very concerned about Global Cooling as it has the most potential to bring famine and I don't want to be anywhere hear a big city when it comes. And I think Obama knows that too.
Starvation is a great motivator. It brought about the Mongol invasion of china and the French Revolution. Yes, I can see hundreds of thousands of people marching on Washington DC for food. What's Obama going to say? "Let them eat cake"?

....Besides intimidation, the upcoming food riots or the arrest of bloggers like myself, I can’t really pin point many uses.....

I bad!

Now that the province of Ontario has an openly gay female Liberal Premier..
We'll have to learn a new term known as 'Lesbionics'....

What do you call a pantry full of lesbians?
A licker cabinet

What do you call an Eskimo lesbian?
A Klondyke.

What do you call two lesbians in a canoe?
Fur traders.

What do you call a lesbian with long fingers?
Well hung.

How can you tell a tough lesbian bar?
Even the pool table doesn't have balls.

What's the difference between a Ritz cracker and a lesbian?
One's a snack cracker; the other's a crack snacker.

What do you have when you've got 50 lesbians and 50 Ontario provincial government workers?
100 people that don't do dick.
