"He was doing his show and going down the runway," said Suze Gusching, media relations for Field of Flight. "He passed by the explosion, and his truck had exploded."

Does this make sense to anyone?

Suze is in the wrong career.

no info on the driver so there's still hope.  if his wife left him and his dog died, he might make it into a country song.

I assumed she had a concussion from the explosions.

Having watched the youtube clip, I'm unclear on whether the ground explosion that happened well in advance of the truck was planned or not.  It could be that the first explosion was planned pyrotechnics but the truck wasn't suppose to hit it, but it did and also exploded unplanned.

What's not to understand? The explosion clearly ripped a hole in the space time continuum, throwing him and his truck back in time to when he was first starting down the runway, and when he passed the spot where he initially exploded his truck exploded again. Makes perfect sense.

Yes. It's clear that as he approached the explosion, his explosion exploded. This exploded the explosion's explosion, resulting in an explosion. The resulting explosion exploded the prior explosion, exploding the explosive explosion's explosion as it exploded.

I mean, hell. It's right there in black and white. Maybe take a reading comprehension class or something?

Counter-point, maybe we should let more of these people blow themselves up for our entertainment.  The alternative is to keep them around so that they can vote.

Watch the video, the one posted to youtube vs the media website.  There was a pyrotechnic planned explosion that he passed, I can't tell if the pyrotechnic caused the truck to go or if the truck was already on fire before it reached the pyrotechnic.  It mostly looks like the truck had already started to have problems before it passed the pyrotechnic.

If only they had some steel beams they would have been okay.

I think the problem is that his engineering was about as good as his wife's grammar.  To think we let these people vote, carry guns, and decide what health decisions other people should make for their own body.

Snapper Carr: If only they had some steel beams they would have been okay.


Low-background steel is any steel produced prior to the detonation of the first nuclear bombs in the 1940s and 1950s. Typically sourced from shipwrecks and other steel artifacts of this era, it is often used for modern particle detectors because more modern steel is contaminated with traces of nuclear fallout.[1

2022-07-02 10:25:43 PM  
So here's some coverage from a different local station:
Jet truck driver killed in air show accident
Youtube VkmBndIVKY0


It still isn't super clear whether that monster fireball on the ground before the truck was planned, unplanned, or planned but incorrectly executed.  They're talking about pyrotechnics displays and fireworks, but that thing just looks like a monster fuel explosion.

Regardless, there's some A-grade 'murica at the end of that broadcast.  (paraphrased): "We're getting questions on facebook about the balloon activities etc. being canceled.  That is false.  Hundreds of people just watched a man get roasted alive, but don't worry: only this afternoons air displays are cancelled. The balloons will go on and tomorrow too.  We're still seeing about taking up a collection for [driver]'s family. Back to you."

He hit 88mph half way down with a flux charged flux capacitor.

It would have been more 'Murica if the truck was hauling bootlegged Coors.
 
2022-07-02 10:35:12 PM  
So the driver was fired?
 
2022-07-02 10:35:36 PM  
What....what was supposed to happen?  That almost looked like it was exactly what they had planned
 
2022-07-02 10:38:11 PM  
None. None more Murica.
 
2022-07-02 10:38:47 PM  
Did anyone shoot a gun wile yelling 'Kiddddddd Rockkkkkkk' and holding a 100% Waygu burger while wearing a Chinese made flag as a poncho? No? Well, then there was plenty of 'Maurica to be had

Good, it's an airshow.  If I wanted to see rednecks driving ridiculous trucks I would have stayed out in the parking lot.

But they put their "thinkun'" hats on and everything!  The plan was both brutal and cunning! Right up to the point where the truck exploded.

There was no gun involved from that I could tell.

Literally five minutes from my house. While I didn't hear this particular explosion, this weekend has been nothing but the continuous pops of fireworks and extended periods of time listening to jets screaming by above me. Not a big deal for most of the local population, but when you work nights like I do......
 
2022-07-02 11:15:00 PM  
There was an explosion ahead of the stunt truck, but it had an engine explosion before it reached the display explosion. It's a 65 year old design, probably close to that age, run to max.
 
2022-07-02 11:17:26 PM

We have had jet-powered semi trucks for 65 years?  or those are 65 year old jet engines?

Here's a video taken from a better angle in the crowd. It shows the truck's jet engine bursting into flames before it got anywhere near the other explosion:
