It looks photoshopped. Look at the secondary boot cowl and the angle it is. What type of engine is it supposed to be? The intake doesn't match either the PT-6 or Allison 250.
 
Turbine Cubs of Wyoming (TCOW) initially was going to produce turbine Cubs. I guess the engine didn't pan out so the project was dropped.

patey stuck that turbine in that wilga, little different aircraft, i know, but sometimes you never know. just fun to see the idea wagon rolling.
 
Tailnumber of turbine cub in post #1 comes up as an Astra jet.
Pic in post #6 looks real though.

Practical...maybe not.
But since when does that stop anyone?
For example, years ago Doug Combs built a turbine powered Luscombe.

Look down at the bottom, it was on a PA-18 which was cancelled 6/19/1970.
 
Not sure what the picture is asserting.? The first one is fake. The one above is a Solar T62 I believe, which they briefly thought was a great idea...if you like sucking down twice the fuel for 160 hp, then right on...

I love turbines, don't get me wrong...ultra cool engines and my helicopter makes great use of one...but the picture up at the top isn't real...

that's all...
