You can see the light from the flames a few seconds after the engine departs. I wonder what it hit?

I can almost see the grizzled, veteran engineer sipping his coffee and turning to the rookie next to him (who is about to run,) to say "That's why we always clear the test cell before a run."

Can you imagine the mess it made of whatever was to the left, just off-camera?

I can just hear it now...

"Good Morning, State Farm Insurance, may I help you?"

Uh, yeah, my car just got totalled...

"Can you tell me the intersection where the accident occurred?

Well, uh no. I was parked next to the maintenance building, and a running jet engine blew through the wall from inside and hit the front of my car. It hit pretty much dead center, and plowed a hole all the way through the car and hit somebody else's car behind me...

I'm in the industry and I didn't know that this happened.

That's too funny!

OPNLguy,
Just think about how you're going to explain the lost engine to the customer! (Most engines have work like this outsourced.)

Air Force Operator: Thank you for calling our Air Force. We specialize in tactical attacks.
Test engineer: Could I please speak to Col. Sanders?
Operator: Connecting.
Col. Sanders: What! I'm not in a good mood, why are you bothering me. The trainer engine rebuild is due tomorrow, don't you dare tell me it wasn't done on time. The space cadets are ready to begin flight training and I'm a trainer short!
Test engineer: No sir, it was rebuilt on time.
Col. Sanders: Then why are you calling me!
Test engineer: Umm... the engine sort of took off.
Col. Sanders: WHAT!
Test engineer: Did you have insurance on the engine?
Col. Sanders: WHAT?
Test engineer: Well... it totaled my coworkers car and dented mine.
Col. Sanders: Are you telling me my engine went flying on its own? AND you want compensation for the damanges?
Test engineer: Yes.
Col. Sanders: "click" (hangs up)
Air Force Operator: Yes Col. Sanders?
Col. Sanders: Get me the strike desk!

I'm glad nothing like that ever happened to me!

I didn't notice it until just now, but once the thing launches (at :15 seconds into the :22 second video) you start to see an orange glow off to the left that gets increasingly bright during the last :07 seconds of the video....

Burned the hell out of something....

"Sir, where did the accident occur? At what intersection?"

It happened at work. A jet engine being run in a test cell came off the stand, blew through a cinderblock wall, and hit my car parked on the other side. The thing hit my grill and hood, and has pretty much cut the car in half all the way to the trunk.

"Sir, it's only 9:15 am.; isn't that a little early to be drinking?"

Pretty crazy stuff, makes you wonder how closely they were watching the engine during the test because you can see it shift in the mounts a couple of times before it lets go. Unless this is normal you would think that someone would have hit an E-stop or something. Still good fun for us, so long as no-one was hurt.
