I love the old radial engined birds. Flew the T-28 in flight training. If you didn`t close the cowl flaps on a descent, the cylinder head temps got low and when you poured the coal to it , it looked and sounded like it was going to come right off the front of the aircraft( smoke, backfiring, etc). You actually had to do some "pilot shit" to fly a radial.
