Props to the Kalitta classic used in the challenge (can't tell if it's a -100 or -200):

Props to the Kalitta classic

Ahem. Shouldn't that be Turbofans to the Kallita classic.....   

I remember being at Maho beach at SXM when a KLM 744 revved up to takeoff thrust. The sand gets whipped up and can really sting. I am not talking about the guys standing at the perimeter fence and clinging on for dear life. I was on the other side of the road on the beach. Very impressive effect.

No, Actually it was a brand new episode.

They were testing Tornado Force winds vs. Storm Chaser Vehicles, has nothing to do with a Taxi.

Adam And Jaime also get right in the thick of the winds as well.

Yeah, I'd seen the taxi one a few years ago (I believe the Brits ran that test) and it popped up on the "related videos" list on msn.com but as far as I could tell, this one was "new."

Whatever the case, it's cool to see the power of a classic on full display.

If you check out the new Jackass 3D movies, there is a pretty funny part where they use jet exhaust (I think of an old fighter, but I don't remember...) to shoot objects at people...cracked me up.

They were using an L-39 and yea they did a lot of stuff that well, haha, I would not suggest. One of the supporting cast members actually broke his shoulder and shattered his hand during this stunt.

They did something like this in the new Jackass 3D movie. Except it was a lot more entertaining. Is it me or are Mythbusters running out of ideas. I mean seriously; it is pretty obvious that a man can not walk behind a 747 with its engines throttled up.
Always cool to see planes on TV though!

Nice work shooting from the hip.. though your aim was pretty far off the mark this time, LAX. This was a brand-new episode.

Most impressive was Hyneman's ingenuity with the portable tornado protector he built, and the inability of the 747 to unseat him.

It's you. This episode wasn't about being able to walk behind a 747, but rather testing Storm Chaser vehicles and Jamie's portable device that can somewhat protect you in tornado force winds from flying objects. Very cool episode, made 100x better with the use of a classic 747.
