A 7.2L Dodge ticking over at 2,700-rpm.

But the “best” always came down to either a Steam locomotive, or a radial-engined airplane.

I live under the main runway approach to Air Force Plant Four. A former SAC base also, now a joint services base. F-35 Lightning? F-18 Super Hornet? Legacy or current Herky Birds? We got ‘em.
