G-VAST 747-400 Virgin Atlantic (Prestwick 6-7-04).


The 747 powered up two engines to 100% and two cars were shot in front of them by a hydraulic ram for filming a feature on engine power for the Top Gear TV program.

On the right hand side of the photo one of the cars is being prepared to be blasted away by the big jet while in the background a departing Atlas 747 climbs away after leaving from Runway 31.
