Remark Photographer
G-VAST (cn 28757/1117) This Virgin 747 came to Prestwick for a feature on the UK TV car program "Top Gear" as well as "Braniac"and you can see the TV presenter, Richard Hammond, doing his intro piece while standing inside one of the engines. The purpose was to run two engines at full power and two cars were driven in front of them to show how powerful jet engines are. (1/350th & F9.5 285mm)
