Video: F-16 Engine Test

Check this crazy video out. These guys are standing next to an F-16 doing throttle transient engine testing. At the point these guys are standing, if they were to get into that exhaust plume while the jet is in afterburner, the wind velocity would be 1200 knots and temperature around 1500 degrees F.

How about the noise? Where they are at, it is about 110 - 135 dBa. Even with ear protection you are supposed to limit yourself to 5 minutes or less a day!
