Out on the taxiway you can hear the deafening roar of an engine and see billowing clouds of smoke. You feel the reverberations of mini sonic booms. You look up, expecting to see a state of the art jet fighter and realize it’s not an aircraft at all, but the Smoke-n-Thunder Jet Car right before your eyes at ground level, preparing to accelerate.

Look with awe to the end of the runway as Bill Braack engages the afterburner on the car’s Westinghouse J34-48 engine, generating 6,000 pounds of thrust, shooting 20-foot flames out the back and producing billowing smoke and mini sonic booms.

Always a crowd favorite, the team at Smoke-n-Thunder boast a 100% safety record, and hundreds of thousands of satisfied spectators.
