I was wondering what the crank shaft on a twenty-eight cylinder radial engine looked like. While visiting the Hiller Aviation Museum I found a powered cutaway model of the engine and several of my questions were answered.
The F2G Super Corsair has one of these engines while the B-36 Peacemaker had six and Howard Hughes' HK-1 (a.k.a. H-4 "Hercules," a.k.a "The Spruce Goose") had eight!
The Hiller Aviation Museum also had the nose section, including the cockpit mock-up, of the Boeing Super Sonic Transport proposal. For more information on the museum, see:
