Heh ouch, she really planted into that concrete barrier.

Yup. Looks like she bore the brunt with her shoulder. If she had led head first, she might be dead. Stupid.

FTFA: The woman appears to have ignored signs on the beach warning that jet blasts from the planes can cause injury or even death.

If only there were slightly larger signs directing one's attention to the other signs. All of this could have been avoided.

Hardly looked like she was the only one doing it, just that she was the only one to get videoed face-planting into a concrete barrier.

I'd be willing to bet there are dumb-asses lining up at the fence for every jet that takes off.

She's near a jet airliner, don't bury her too far away whoa-o-o! She's near a jet airliner, and it's Fark where she's gonna pay!

I've seen landings with that beach, but I haven't seen a takeoff next to that beach.

That was not a Learjet... Any idea how large that aircraft was?

soupbone: That sand hitting them at that speed had to hurt like hell.


It does. I was watching a C-17 one time at an Air Force installation that really doesn't have the fences/barriers one would normally expect. Anyway, usually departing aircraft would get moving forward then turn left and taxi across the ramp. This joker started moving forward, and did a 180 with the engines spun up pretty good.
I was probably a good 100 feet away, and still got a good sandblasting from all of the sand and debris in the parking lot that I was standing in. It hurts about as much as you'd expect.

I'd blow her off her feet with a blast from my jet wash, if you know what I mean.

It's a good thing that concrete wall was there to stop her, otherwise she would've been killed when she hit all that sand on the beach.

Even if you don't get injuries from falling over, having one unlucky piece of gravel hit you in the right spot doing a couple hundred miles an hour could kill you. Even more likely would be losing an eye or a pretty scarring injury.

Freaking morons

Right right...

It's not that I really care that much but since I'm here anyway...

iPhone doesn't not support Flash just to support Quicktime. They don't support Flash because Flash mobile was historically a bad product that reduced the stability of any product it was on. It's Adobe's fault, not Apple's, and now that HTML 5 is in play, Adobe basically isn't even trying anymore. Although I too mourn that I don't have Flash on my iPhone, it's not like they did it for no good reason

Takeoff was good, but she needs to work on her landing.

There are countless videos of this airport on youtube. Between low approaches over the beach and idiots at the fence for takeoffs, the lulz are endless.

Nah... wouldn't happen. I've had gravel and chunks of rubber hit me square in the throat at near 200mph speeds before. And aside from a nasty welt for a few days, no real damage done.

I used to love that album back in the day. I listened to it recently on Rhapsody only to shake my head and wonder what the hell I was thinking. Also shook my head in amazement that it's already been 20 years since it came out. OM is still the shizzle, though.

It was a jetBlue A-320. This airport also gets 747s and other heavies.

I wonder why they don't use a blast deflector? Not enough clearance for landing planes? I've seen this airport before, and they do come in inches over the beach sometimes.

Ha ha. Funny. They were particularly painful post 9-11.

I had to OWN a few of them who reckoned it really was a plane that hit the Pentagon. They didn't like being PWNED by a N00B.

Navy dude sucked into A-6 Intruder jet engine intake and lives - including a hilarious shot of him in a sling and wrapped in bandages like something out of a Loony Toons cartoon.
