Vintage airplane recording experts?

Hey Group,

I'm a post-sound mixer working on a doc about a Japanese pilot who was involved in the only mainland US bombing during WWII, near Brookings, Oregon.

Fascinating story, really. 


I'm trying to get a sense of what it might have sounded like. This was a small seaplane, a Yokosuka E14Y with a 340 hp Hitachi Tempu 12 9 cyl engine.

An eyewitness to the attack (he was in a nearby fire outlook) described it as very odd sounding- like someone kicking a can down the street.

So, probably much different sounding than a typical seaplane. Maybe he was throttled back. Who knows.
