    2 cars vs 747

    This is a pretty cool video of what happens when you drive behind an airplane with full power. The plane is only using 2 of its 4 engines even. It's from a British show called Top Gear. MythBusters here in the US tried the same stunt at Mojave, but weren't allowed to do so...go figure.

    Shows why driving behind a jet is a bad idea

    When I first watched it I thought they were actually going to be driving behind the plane as it went down the runway. Oh well, still fun to watch. lol

    Awesome.
    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.


    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

    Try landing a Cherokee Warrior behind an airliner at night, or using a parallel runway when they are active. Great fun.
