I’ll bet the torque from the Wright R-2600-20 Cyclone 14 twin-row radial engine (which produced 1,900 hp) WAS a bear!

The T-28 with the R-1820 single row 9 cylinder 1425hp was a beast on no-flap touch & goes. I had a buddy torque roll one 720 degree while practicing approach turn stalls at 5,000’ AGL.

Now THAT woke up his flight instructor in the back seat!

(sorry ‘bout the rabbit trail...the original thread was just such a sad story...)

No idea what that was supposed to mean.
