It is quite common to see completely different afterburner colors in Russian Aircraft. *Different colors. To me that would mean that they are burning at different temperatures and that would mean a power difference. Anyone no more about this?

  1. Нет это не так. Под разным углом, разное преломление света. Вы наверно замечали особенность русских двигателей, что они коптят. Так вот номинально тяга одинакова, плюс контроль автоматики дожигания и подачи топлива. С даной проблемой столкнулись при создании миг 31. Учитывая большой размер их сопел. Проблема решилась элементарно. На номинальных мощностях, при дозвуковой скорости компрессор отдельно подает разное количество кислорода в камеру горения. Из за этого по разному и горят. Стоит добавить, что при высшем пилотажа, постоянно используется рукоятка тяги, а их сдвигают не всегда ровно, ступеньками. Левой, правой, левой, правой.

    I agree with you it may have been too that he is flying inverted

    I note air intakes are open , situated in front of missile rack should that make a difference to the air flow to the engines during manoeuvring?

  21. +Ray Powell двигатель двухконтурный.

    +пират пиратов Shay Cormac is an uncivilized bastard, and doesn't speak for all of us.

  23. +Ray Powell Россия никогда не была союзником Гитлера, а вот Америка поставляла двигатели, технику и кредиты фашистам.

    Has anyone worked out yet why the engines are different colours yet?

    A good explanation by mister +Keith Abnett
    It simply might be because the engine throttles are at different settings, but I doubt it when a pilot is doing an inverted manoeuvre. The fuel burn colour in afterburning (sometimes know as reheat) depends upon a variety of factors like the amount of oxygen being consumed, amount of carbon being burnt in both the combustion chambers as well as the jet pipe. Also you have to consider whether there any additives that have been added (like de-icing) and held in suspension in the fuel.
    A good example of how the colour of a flame changes in a bunsen burner (sigh school days!-) if you rotate the collar around the air inlet hole burner's tube. The flame ranges from light blue to red/orange depending on the amount of oxygen being let through.
