Piston/turbine Engines On One Aircraft
February 08, 2018, 11:41:08 AM

At the same time, I mean-- an aircraft that has piston engines and one or more jets or turboprops. There have been lots of them: Lancaster/Lancastrians with Nenes and everything else, B-36s, B-50s, KC-97s, P4Ms, P2Vs, and then C-119s and the like with small jets for use on takeoff. The XA-26F set a 1000-km-with-1000-kg-payload record: 410 mph (did they take the record away from the Ju88?).

Question is, did any of the jet engines burn jet fuel? Or did they always use the same avgas that the pistons did?

Please Help.

Thanks !

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

well your question seems not clear to me.
jet fuel of course is a different thing and piston engine cant work on it but turbine can run on the whole family of hydrocarbons including methane gas.
