Little Planes: Beware Jet Blast... Even From Small Airliners

Skyhawk Gets Blown Away By CRJ

When operating in close proximity to jet aircraft, exercise EXTREME caution... the amount of thrust put out by even the lowest power settings is more than enough to turn any GA bird right on it's butt if caught at just the right angle. Beware the "business end" of jet engines!
