Everyone:

A friend of mine sent me this link today -

http://www.aviationexplorer.com/movies/Airplane747Jetblast.mpg

The video shows the apparent strength of the jet blast of a 747 on the tarmac at SFO.

This video looks like a fake to me, but I thought I would get the expert opinions of the Airliners.net community to validate my assumptions.

Please let me know what you think.

The video is real. It was staged to demonstrate the effects of jet blast for a safety video. The engine was removed from the vehicle to make it lighter and it was towed behind the 747 by the fire truck visible in the lower left corner of the frame. The 747s engine was at T/O power. The combination of an engineless vehicle and T/O power does exagerate the typical result of driving behind a running jet but most viewers of the tape weren't informed of this detail.

Bongo - What is the point of your response. Did you just activate the hyperlink for me? Thanks if that was your intention.

Goomba,

That video is real, a UA 747 at SFO. Was at SXM for spring break 3 yrs ago and witnessed the power of AF 747 blowing crap into the water off the beach.

Aa777jr:

I always wondered about SXM. You see pictures of people standing on the beach as 747's fly over head.

Aren't they blown away by the jet blast?

What is that like?

This particular video cost UAL a LOT of money. It seems the EPA got involved when they found out that UA hadn't properly decontaminated the vehicle from its various fluids, etc. Our trainers at UA told us a big lawsuit ensued following the filming of this demonstration.

Upon closer inspection it looks like a 767. The empanage is shaped like a 767. Also I don't think UA ever had any 777 in that livery.

Goomba,

The day before we got to SXM, I was told a man got blown from the fence to the water off the beach and broke his arm landing in the water.  Smile I saw alot of sand and people getting blown around, but no serious injuries. It was quite a sight.

Cheers,

Wait, this isn't UAL is it? Isn't it OZ (Asiana)? So is that aircraft running its engines and taxing into the rwy?

DC8

Are you sure that's a 747? Looks like a 777.

That is a 747-400 combi on Asiana.

First images show an Asiana 747, but then it changes to a UAL 767, I totally agree with Dl757md, the tip of the A/C where the APU is located clearly indicates a 767 shape-like design.


No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.

Well, the power setting of an a/c taking off is totally different to an a/c on short final. Most a/c on short final is usually on idle power setting, therefore the jet-blast is very minimum. The noise may still be very loud, but it's not as powerful as an a/c at take off power.

That's definatly a UA 767 at SFO. The old colors and the APU give that one away.

The video begins by the view of a B744 of Asiana...It doesn't mean that the aircraft used for the test IS a B744 of Asiana.

This aicraft used for this test, conducted deliberately to show to airport staff worldwide the power (and dangers) of a Jet blast, is a B767.

there was a similar stunt recently done by "Top Gear" television programme in the UK. I believe, they have used Virgin Atlantic 747-400.

Its definitely not a 777 as the copyright date on the video is 1993, which is something like 2 or 3 years before UA even got their first 777...

They did a demonstration over here in the uk like that, virgin 747 and engine at take off power, then drove t cars into the jet blast to see which was better (its a program called top gear, for car nuts).

http://www.airliners.net/open.file/666832/L/

Theres a pic of them filming, and a bit of a description too.
