JUMBO JET ENGINE STRIKES AUTO ON RUNWAY!

5-15-06
Regardinge picture number 108005, it actually shows part of a sequence filmed by the Top Gear car program where they wanted to see what effect crosswinds had on various cars. In order to test this, they "borrowed" a 747 from BA and towed several cars across the runway whilst running the engine at full throttle for a few seconds!! The car shown is a 2CV citroen and they also tested a Ford Mondeo and a Caravan I think. Coincidentally, the engines generate some 30,000 lbs of thrust and a 2CV weighs about 1000!!
