    If you Google Blackburn Palouste Airborne Air Start Pod, the first result takes you to some pictures on the Britmodeller website. They look like what you are looking for. Hope it helps.Its the link posted in #5.

    started a topic Paloust starters

    Paloust starters

    Anyone have a description of a paloust starter pack as used by the Royal navy?I remember when at Khormaksar we (RAF)would handle various navy types passing by and they would carry a paloust on a wing pylon which would be lowered on wheels and then a hose appeared which was connected somewhere and it would be started and provide compressed air to start the engine(s)it would then be packed up and winched up onto the pylon and of it would go!!Any photos out there or even a cutaway?
