Hi,

Just to let you Prestwick Spotters know that there is going to be a VS 747-400 at Prestwick on Tuesday 6th July. It is due to arrive from LHR some time after 10am and leave approx 4 hours later. Sorry I can't be more exact about the timing!.

Is this the aircraft that a certain motoring TV show are filming? I know they were trying to get an A346 in to Manston but the airport declined to have it cluttering up the place  Wink/being sarcastic

I don't think there was enough time in the schedule for the A346 in the end.

If anyone can get some pictures whilst it is on the ground they could turn out to be very interesting!  Wow!

A program here in the USA called "Mythbusters" besides trying to blow up a DC-9 to simulate sudden decompression (see other posts) also tried to replicate a true event in Brazil where a taxi was badly damaged by jet blast. The did it at Mohovie, CA aircraft graveyard, but couldn't use a real a/c due to insurance concerns. They instead got a movie special effects company to run smaller jet engine set up at the same site. They were not able to get the results like shown here in this post, but clearly did some damage. The Mythbusters used a much larger US car (a Dodge Intreped), not a car about the size and weight of a microwave oven.

It's quite a frightening demonstration of just how much air can be moved by a jet engine(s).

I know most airline SOP's stipulate extreme care in taxiing for this reason. There's some pictures on here of a 747 in Alaska that managed to blow a baggage train into the terminal after some fairly fruity throttle work.



It takes a big man to admit they are wrong, and I am not a big man.

I was in a Renault 19 when I worked at MAN waiting to cross a taxiway infront of T2, when a Delta L10-11 went past and round the corner and the jetblast had my car shaking from side to side quite violently. A little more power and I would have gone too !!!.

Was fun at the time though !!!.

A number of years ago, The New York Knicks basketball team was returning to the NY area. They were flying a chartered 737 into Westchester County Airport (HPN). The team members were allowed to park their cars on the tarmac near the private hanger they used. As the plane taxied in, the pilot used almost full thrust on the outside engine as he turned the plane around. Head coach Dave Van Gundy's Honda Civic was blown off the ground and landed on top of two SUV's belonging to other players. Van Gundy said that, even though the car had well over 100,000 miles on it, it was the best car he ever had and was very disappointed.
