Sounds Of Ghosts of The Great War

  • Availability: In Stock

Have you ever heard the throaty growl of a Fokker D.Vll? Did you know that the whole outside of a Le Rhone rotary engine, cylinders and all, spins in the air with the propeller? Engine starts, takeoffs, flybys and landings are painstakingly recorded in near perfect conditions. The engines in these planes are all authentic to the era and the aircraft were the most advanced of their time. You’ll hear the Hispano Suiza V 8 powered S.E.5a, the 80 Le Rhone powered Fokker D.Vl, the 100 Gnome powered Fokker E.lll Eindecker, the 180 Mercedes powered Fokker D.Vll, and finally the mighty 160 Gnome rotary powered Fokker D.Vlll.

Then, we've created an S.E.5a versus D.Vlll dogfight, portraying what WWl air battles might have sounded like. We’ve also got three fascinating and informative interviews. Javier Arango, Chuck Wentworth and Wayne Handley vividly describing what it takes to research, build, maintain and fly these warbirds from another time.

Our philosophy is simply to bring the most realistic sound experience available to the listener with current technology. We've been recording digitally since 1983. This eliminates all tape hiss and makes the background nice and quiet. We've taken great pains to develop a microphone recording system that captures the planes realistically. Additionally you'll rarely hear wind noise, background talking or other extraneous noises on our recordings.
