Smokin’ down the track: a school bus

Breathing fire and hitting speeds of 367mph, no child would ever be late taking this jet-powered bus to school. The monster machine dubbed ‘School Time’ is fitted with a 42,000hp fighter-jet engine that can propel it a quarter of a mile in a matter of seconds. It shoots out 80ft flames as it screams down the runway, burning an incredible 150 gallons of fuel in a single run. The iconic vehicle wows motor fans across North America including Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, where these images were captured.
