    It can either mean "Wound Full Out", or "Wide F'n Open", depending on who is in the room.

I'd say it was a low tech machine but it had draft control, differential lock and a FEL .
    It's not flame . It's only incandescent gasses, exhaust, the by products of combustion that took place previously way back down in the combustion chamber . There is no fuel and oxygen mixing and burning in the manifolds, in the muffler or just above the muffler's stack.

    OK something other then flame but it was cherry red hot and I choose not to stick my fingers in the exhast plume.

    That video is definitely burning fuel coming out the exhaust because of insufficient oxygen.

    But for me most funny thing is a comment just under that YouTube video: Why is that engine doing that periodically? Is there a fat kid on the ferris wheel?
