Indy Boys Inc of Indianapolis, led by Paul Stender, added the engine from a Phantom fighter jet to a school bus they very heavily modified (a factory standard one would have likely cracked wide open from the jet engine’s thrust, giggity).

It shoots out an 80 foot long flame while burning 600 gallons of fuel per mile with the 42,000 horsepower Phantom fighter jet engine. You can watch it taking a run in the video below. This needs to be hooked to a modified short bus immediately to make some lucky children the fastest slow kids alive.
Mr Stender, 43, said: “I built the bus for two reasons. The first is to entertain people because, come on, it’s a jet bus. The second, is to keep kids off drugs. Jets are hot, drugs are not.
