Default Demorun of the jet engine at KULeuven

Yesterday I had the pleasure of filming a demorun of the full scale jet engine at the Thermotechnical Institute of the University of Leuven (Belgium). Rather impressive to see the power from closeby. I'll take it any day to blow away the leafs in my front yard :-)
At the end they drop a brick into the exhaust stream...
