Paul Stender – School Time Jet-Powered School Bus & Jet Port-O-Potty
School Time Jet-Powered School Bus is the first of
its kind in the world. At nearly 10 feet high and 35 feet long, it is the
largest jet vehicle on Earth. The bus is equipped with a 42,000 horsepower
General Electric J-79 Jet Engine straight out of a F4 Phantom Fighter Jet.
This will be the largest fire show you will ever see! The spectacular 75-foot
flames and smoke shooting out of the exhaust of the bus makes for a hot ending
to any twilight or night show.

The Port-o-Jet Outhouse is a standard size and model port-o-john with
one minor modification-a 1,000 horsepower jet engine!
