    WTF?!? The dumbass taxied behind a B-1 that was cleared into position behind another one taking off. Ground personnel all around just watching the whole moronic evolution!!!! LOTS of blame there, an accident that should have never happened!!!!!

    Ground looked like another day in the park :) And the second B1 I could imagine the pilot giving the F16 a salute with a smile.

    The cameraman was more interested in the B-1s than the F-16! :lol:

    bet you that plane was grounded for a decent amount of time while they inspected the gear (especially the one that took the whole weight of the ac ) and that wing. the wing tip touched the ground keeping the plane from flipping.....could have stressed a lot of things when that happened.

    I thought this video would belong in this thread because it illustrates the force of the B-1's wash...

    However, this time, it's not an F-16 that gets dumped - it's spectators! :lol:

    There is also a great roll performed by the B-1 towards the end, too :thumbleft:

    Great video Dave.

    The B-1 looks a pretty impressive airshow performer, would love to see one for real !

    Glad you liked it, Karl!

    I love it when the bodies start tumbling! :lol:

    That must have been an ear-shattering, nose & eye burning lesson for those that aren't smart enough to avoid direct jet-wash...especially something as powerful as the B-1!

    And seeing the B-1 in flight is a thrill and I've been fortunate to have seen both the B-1A and B-1B over the years :thumbleft:

    * I should mention that the B-1A I saw, was at Norton AFB and was just there briefly This was in the late 70's and they were still doing testing - and it was all shiny white!
