Starting its first engine

Sentimental Journey starts up its first engine as it gets ready to take a group on a 20 minute flight around the area. You can see the smoke belching as the engine starts turning. Once all 4 engines were running, there was quite a breeze for those standing behind the plane and a distinctive smell of the exhaust. This image was taken at 18mm focal length with an exposure of 1/160 seconds at f/16, ISO 100.
