The aircraft hanger that machine was in would not have supported arcs that
long. One of Richard Hull's video tapes has a lecture in it about this
machine and the sparks seem pretty conventional given the scale of that coil.
There were a number of people who worked with Golka on that project. They
and the pictures of the machine working , do not indicate anything remotely
near 155 feet.
One reference I have (John Courture's JHCTES guide) gives 50 feet at 150kW
input power. This was a very "rough" copy of the Colorado Springs coil.
BTW - John gives a 4.6 million volts for the Colorado Springs coil but that
sounds high to me.
