2016 Thermaltake CaseMOD Invitational Season 2 - HUFFER Build
I am Rakesh Sharma from INDIA. Representing my country at 2016 Thermaltake CaseMod Invitational Season 2 with a unique casemod reflecting my passion towards Jet-Engines. Being from an engineering family background I always had a great attraction towards machines and engines, but unfortunately ended up as a Software Engineer in real life.
And Jet-Engines are such a beautiful artwork of engineering with great sound and power, which makes me little more passionate about. Now through this CaseMod I will try to showcase (likewise) one essential equipment used for starting a Jet engine.
The MA-1A Air-start cart or the 'HUFFER' cart.
For this CaseMod, I will be modifying the Thermaltake Core X5 ATX Chassis.
ABOUT BUILD IDEA
MA-1A Air-start cart, some people called it the â€œHufferâ€, is a start cart used to start Jet engines. This cart generates high velocity air, this air is then fed into the aircraft jet engine, causing it to spin or spool up with sufficient RPM for starting. The cart's air delivery system is powered by a small turbine engine. This thing has started many well known aircrafts like Lockheed F-104, Boeing B-52 and YB-49, a flying wing design bomber aircraft commissioned for service with the U.S. Air Force shortly after World War II.
* Thanks to AgentJayZ for sharing this video. And if you love the sound of starting of a turbine engine as I do, forward the video time to 5:42 Enjoy..
Due to its rugged design, MA-1A start cart is still used to start modern Fighter-planes and commercial airlinerâ€™s engines at many countries around the World.
