Allison V-1710-27 Engine Restoration

Joe Bok and his team took great pride in restoring this Allison V-1710-27 engine. This engine traces its history back to a starboard engine mount on a Lockheed P-38 Lightning during 1943. Previously removed from a P-38 during the war and shipped back to the United States for overhaul on December 31st, 1943. An incredible piece of American history that has survived the years to be brought back to life once again.




Valve cover removed to show the cool overhead 4-valve per cylinder design. P-39 Exhaust Stacks are just for looks!

Continental R-670

Continental R-670 Radial Engine in for top overhaul by Aero Telemetry. Built in the 1930's it was used on many training airplanes of that era, like the famous PT17 Stearman Biplane. The short shaft version was also used in many WW2 tanks and even in a US Navy Landing Craft. #aviation #radialengine #enginerun #WWII #restoration

Sikorsky S-38 airplane model for the film The Aviator

Aero Telemetry built the Sikorsky S-38 model airplane that was used to digitally recreate the flying sequences in the Academy Award winning film The Aviator. The scene depicted Leonardo DiCaprio as Howard Hughes flying with Cate Blanchett as Katharine Hepburn. This little airplane was shot against a green screen and digitized to simulate flying conditions over Los Angeles at night. There are several other scenes in the movie which include our S-38 model airplane, as well. Another interesting Hollywood movie behind the scenes fact!
