"Lucille" blasting the hell out of me as she blows the snow of her rotors and the entire ramp area on takeoff. COLD! -27 that morning plus the wind chill from the hurricane force winds she is creating. Awesome sound from those two 4,050 shaft horsepower (3,020 kW) Pratt & Whitney JFTD12A turboshaft engines. With no shrouding around the engines to dampen the effect it is simply raw power and music to your ears.

Ricardo. I did it just for you buddy! :-) glad you like it. It was very cold but to be that close to this bird was so worth it.
