Aero Telemetry H-1 Racer Project 2010
Joe Bok and his Aero Telemetry team designed and built the Hughes H-1 Racer Airplane for the AMA 75th Anniversary Event over the course of roughly 4 months in 2010.

Wright R-3350 Radial Engine Run
This vintage aircraft engine is from a Howard Hughes owned Lockheed Constellation. It was removed from the plane in the 1960's and stored at a museum. This video captures the first start of this 3500HP engine after more than 50 years.
Completed in 2007 by Norman Stubbs of TBM this rare 3350-93B engine is one of the most powerful radial engines ever produced. It represents one of the last running survivors from a bygone era of piston engine powered commercial airplanes.
This is the first video of the "Engine Run Series" and features several start-ups of this engine and other 3350 engines. A propeller pitch failure caused the first run of the famous engine to be cut short.
USC Viterbi School of Engineering Alumni Joe Bok discusses his company Aero Telemetry, Inc., building model planes for Martin Scorsese’s Academy Award winning film The Aviator, and how being a linebacker on the University of Southern California football team made him a better businessman.
