Default How to fly a P-47 Training Video

I don't know if any of you here are interested in avionics, but I love stuff like this. The plane has a two-row radial engine with 18 cylinders that are turbocharged and supercharged putting out about 2000hp (52psi at 2700rpm!), and with water injection (war emergency power), about 2400hp. Check out the turbo at 10:00. Also be sure to watch HQ on yt, because it's bigger than the embed here. Anyway, on with the show:

Edit: meant to post in Media.

"for armor, well, the planes 7 tons of metal, and we figure that's good enough. If you're shot from below, we realized 350 gallons of gas tanks are right there under you and will take all the damage! Now ain't that clever boys?"

I like how they edited in a section about only using the water injection for 11 minutes, and to never keep the turbo lever in front of the throttle. Wonder what happens when you forget, 18 bent rods? And now I know how to fly a P-47, nice. Except not, hot damn that's a complicated cockpit!
