This aircraft taxied behind an Avro Shackleton just after it started up, this is the end result, the incident was still happening when I took this pic!

I was at an air show in new zealand and saw an old avero nearly do the same thing behind a Catalina. Only quick thinking by an offical saved it. My condolences to the pilot

Being able to see so much detail in the wing structure as the light angle shows the the interior.
