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
Sabre Jet Engine: first start
The first start and initial test run of the Orenda type 14 turbojet that we have been working on for almost a year now... you and me! It's been a lot of work, and now it's all on the line as we crank this baby up, hit the sparks and spray those combustors with Jet A. It was an exciting and Exhausting day... A special note: this is not a hot start, but fairly typical of the older generations of turbojets to have flames shoot out the tailpipe on startup.
