2011 Shockwave Jet Truck. On The Inside, Capitol Air Show. Sac. CA. 376 MPH. Tweaker Vision 4
Driving the Shockwave Jet Truck. I took this at the Capitol Air Show in Sacramento CA 9-11-11. Here is what it is like driving the fastest Jet Truck in the world, Shockwave. There are 5 levers he will be using. Starting from the right. The red handle is for directing the thrust up wards. This is done to not melt the track when the fire show is put on. Next are the throttles for the 3 jet engines. The long one with the knob is the chute and engine shut down. The one closest to the driver Kent, is for the fire show. He dumps raw diesel into the after burner. When you see him put his right hand up to the roof he is adjusting the fire that comes out of the Exhaust stacks. This is one hole show. It is from the time they stopped at the end of the runway all the way through the full power run. When you see Kent adjust his gloves he is ready for the 300MPH run. Don't blink or you might miss it. Enjoy Thank you Kent and Bob for allowing me to put in the camera. PS : Everyone loves your Chalupa.

Jet Truck Crash at Great New England Airshow 2008
Kent Shockley's $500,000 jet truck crashed on deceleration during the Great New England Airshow on Sunday, September 7, 2008. I slowed down the film at the end and the failure of No. 2parachute to deploy is clearly visible as the truck veers off Westover's runway. Shockley was not hurt, but the truck was damaged since it flipped over once and landed right-side up. Enjoy!
