Video: A Pratt & Whitney PT-6 Turbine Section Cutaway In Action

If you've ever wondered how a turbine section works, wonder no more!

The most ubiquitous turboprop engine in the world is the Pratt & Whitney PT-6–more than a hundred versions of it are out there, too. Famed for its reliability, power and flexibility, the PT-6 is on hundreds of models.
