Yeah took me a bit to find a video showing a GE motor nozzle move as well. Most vids either showed it already closed and opening going to AB for ground runs or were Pratt motors.

At 16 sec, F110-GE-100 on Block 30

WildWeasel303,
Have you worked with a lot of GE-129? I have not, starting to feel like maybe the "Boom start" is more of a GE-100 thing than a GE-129 thing. Like you, I saw it every day on GE-100, but not so sure on GE-129. What do you think?

Here at 0:02 is another one and a "pickled engine" start at 1:20. Both of these are F-110-GE-100 so not related to DCS F-16.

I'm kind of dissapointed. The Actuator sound got to be one of the coolest soundeffects in the aviation world.

But I learned something today, so thank you for that!

Does the F-15C in DCS do it at least? I've never looked outside while landing to notice it.

The PW powered F-15C/E makes that same noise.

No 129's on my end. Our jets are Block 30's so we're on 100's as well (140th Wing). I can't recall the last time I was around a 129 without our jets running / me launching my bird out. Most of the 129's I've been around were from Shaw since they seem to go to Nellis around the same time we do. Nellis isn't exactly the greatest place to compare start ups with everything happening at once.
