I forgot where but I saw a video of a truck driving behind a fence about 200 yards behind an airliner taking off and it flipped the truck pretty bad...

I for one would like to see that mybusters episode.

They must have had some other varient to add than just the jet blast blowing over a car.

This is standard knowledge for ANYONE that works around airplanes.

Notice that was only 2 engines.

4 from a 747 has been known to blow over a 60,000 lb airport rescue fire fighting vehicle. Like this one....


Taken from http://www.emergencyone.com

There is a trainig video somewhere of a 747 blowing a pickup truck about 50 yards into the water.

Many years ago when I was working for a catering company at Seatac I accidently got behind a 737 that was just using breakaway power to start taxing...I about wet myself when the truck tilted about 15 degrees or so...this was a 26' box truck about 24K...

On the Mythbusters episode where they tested this, they couldn't find a company that would allow then to rent one of their jets to test the myth so they had to settle for two less powerful, special effects jet engines. This is why they could not confirm the myth.

Awsome video. Thanks!
It wasn't me, it was my thumbs!

Does anyone know if the girls on the adult friend finder are
for real? I've heard that most of the profiles and pictures
are bogus.
The car destruction was nice!

I saw the episode when the Myth Busters tried to roll a car, but in the end they did say the story that inspired their show was in fact real.

Man them jet engines will blast away anything in its path. If it can put a jetliner in the air with all that thrust blowing a car off the road is just lightwork. Jimmi
