Good morning all!

Funny that none of you have commented on the WW-I in color series this weekend.  

I saw only one surprise.  Some German troops were pulling the prop through on a Gotha, checking for hydro lock, then they all steped back and the engine started as if it had a starter. I didn't see anyone pull the prop to start it.  So did the bigger engines have some form of flywheel or crank starter?

TIA
