The sign says: "STOP, DANGER". The drawing occured at least twice for real! Nice view of Varig´s 733 and the Sugar Loaf. The most beautiful approach in the world in my opinion. [Kodak DX6490]

This is a great picture! I love the backdrop of the mountain! As regards the sign, I saw on an episode of Mythbusters where they attempted to recreate the accident using a jet engine on a trailer and a Chrysler taxi cab. The problem was the jet engine wasn't big enough to push the car over!

A 737 may not blow over a car but any heavies would do it without breaking a sweat.

For the american mates below:
Yes, the engines from a Boeing 737 can blow a car! It happened once to a cab that was passing right after a VASP Boeing 737-300, while it was accelerating for take-off... The cab rolled over itself twice or three times, hit the rocks on the shore and got to the water...

It was all over the news when it happened, unfortunately, the cab driver ignored all the signs and decided to cross anyway... Belive me, it is not a mith, it has happened before in this airport.
