During my RAF days I actually saw this happen for real with an Austin Mini driving behind a Victor Mk2 with two engines at MAX power.The guy driving it should really have known better as he was the base's Senior Engineering Officer!!!! They were carring out tests at RAF Marham in the early 70's to see if the increased thrust of the Mk2 Victor over the Mk1 Victor would cause any problems when ground running. They had set flags up behind the aircraft and the SEngO decided that he wanted one last test and he drove behind the aircraft. Shame he did not just look in the Aircraft Publication for the Mk2, he would have seen that he was in the middle of the danger area and he would not then have had the ride of his life...He was un-injured but the mini was a write-off.The 50+ crowd of engineers, pilots and crews watching were not so lucky, we suffered strained jaw and stomach muscles thru laughing too much!!!
