Jet Powered School Bus - 300+mph! - Waterloo Airshow 2014
Paul Stender takes his jet-powered school bus up and down the crowd line before lighting the afterburner and accelerating to over 300 mph! Watch for the massive flames coming out of the engine! Now you can go behind the scenes and on the runway with the jet bus!

300 MPH School Bus- School Time!!!
http://www.indyboysinc.com You've seen Jet Trucks, but a Jet School Bus? School Time was never like this when I was a kid! Watch Paul Stender's 361 MPH Jet Powered School Bus racing to beat the morning bell... Students have no excuse turning up late in this school bus! It breathes fire and rockets along at speeds up to 367 mph! And the miles just fly by after it was fitted with a 42,000 HP GE J-79 jet engine lifted from a McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom fighter jet. Dubbed “School Time” the bus also belches out 80 foot flames, sending huge clouds of smoke billowing from the tail pipe. The bus evolved into a high-speed dragster at the hands of motor-head Paul Stender who custom built the hot rod ride. “The entire vehicle was custom built by myself. There’s no way the original bus could have withstood the speeds that I take it to. “Actually a lot of it is hand-crafted and the types of metals used would be more at home on an aircraft.” Despite its engine size, this school bus still seats three passengers. Media, VIP guests, and sponsors all get in line for a fast trip down the runway! But sadly, it won’t be taking any kids to school in record time: it’s for shows only. “I built the bus for two reasons.The first is to entertain people because, come on, it’s a jet bus.” “The second is to inspire kids to keep away from drugs. Let me explain: We do a lot of displays at schools and we are trying to show kids there’s more to life than sitting in front of computers. It’s important for them to have active hobbies and creative interests to keep busy and keep away from bad influences and drugs. That’s why we wrote our motto on the side of the bus, “Jets are hot, drugs are not.” “I guess this is my revenge for all those days riding on the slow journey to school, now it goes at my kind of pace.” "LIKE" US on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/jetschoolbus
Jet Engine made on a 3D Printer
Made this on a 3D printer. If you want one for yourself, I've put it on: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:114468 Keep away from the blades, they bite! White blades are "Intake" Blue blades are "Compression" Pink blade is "Power" Green blades are "Exhaust" Intake, Compression, Combustion/Power, Exhaust Air is blown against the pink/Power blades, this spins up the inside turbine, (in real life it's usually an electric motor.) Connected to the Power turbine are the Compression blades, these spin up as well and compress the air into the combustion chamber. When the air is compressed enough "Fuel" is added and ignited. This burns and expands, forcing the power turbine to go faster. The burning air/fuel also hit the "Exhaust" blades; these spin the "Intake" blades which push air onto the "Intake" blades, which pushes air into the "Compression" blades. Once the jet is running the "Start" is turned off. This turns the whole thing around and on the end of the shaft is the BIG fan you see when you walk out to your aircraft. The reasons the two fans go in different directions are to cancel out the torque. If they both went in the same direction they would have to push against something to turn, and that would twist the engine off the wing.
