Stef I looked at the video and it 1.5MB just a little big and I don't have a program to make it smaller.  To describe the video it shows two guys drinking beer and fishing.  Then very slowly a Catalina flying boat comes into view heading straight for them.  Has a good ending so I won't ruin I'll keep trying to find a link to the video.
WOW I did that!

I see I can't attach the eiffel.mov due to the last name but I just remembered another wild video. Have you all seen the show Mythbusters, here shown on Discovery. They tried to test a myth about a taxi blown over by driving behind a jet taking off and they had to use Hollywood windmachines since the 737 airliner got cold feet due to insurance, at least I hink it was a 737, but basically the car came close to tipping but not quite but I can't remember if they called it busted or not but it can happend. The english car-show Top Gear destroyed a perfectly good Ford Mondeo (those rotten... I could've used it, seriously, heck it's a dreamcar of mine) by driving it behind 1, one! 747 engine and it got was hurled like a baseball in a major league game. I now found a mpg, just under 1 mb, appearently part of a instructional video for airport crew, where a firetruck, yes truck, is pulled behind a 747, and dude is that truck blown away litterally!  :o

If anyone hasn't seen it and want to just ask (to the best of my knowledge it's not illegal to share that clip, and I hope I'm right).

Wasn't this a scene from the movie Lords of War?

Okay, since we're within our providers bandwith limit, I just lifted the limit to 2.0 MB, and you can also add mov files now! So bring it on!  :)

I guess raising the limit was the reason the forum was 404 (internet-code for: not found/available) a short while ago, I was concerned it'd been hacked or something.
Ok here goes, I think the names speak for themselves.

Strange, it won't accept eiffel.mov as a valid format. Maybe it's a simple spelling-mistake in the filter?

That truck vid is impressive Frank.  I saw that mythbusters and I believ they called it plausibe since they did move the car.  Okay lets see if I can mine to work now.

I totally think it's plausible. I was at an airshow once (I think my brother was with me as well) where they put a VW Bus behind an AV-8 Harrier at the end of the runway where he lined up for a "normal" take-off (not one of his hover ones, they rarely let them do this in Austria 'cause they have to have special tarmacs which don't melt underneath). When the Harrier went full throttle to take off, the VW flipped 8 times like a little leaf in the wind. It was cool!!

I wouldn't doubt it specially with some of those small foreign cars that a couple of guys can roll over.  I don't think a jet would have a problem.

Insane! http://www.airliners.net/open.file/1023918/L/

Btw I read that a russian display-team had been grounded due to some manouvre, any idea what that was? I think it was a Fulcrum or Flanker team, not a civlian team.

This one is nice too :)  http://www.airliners.net/open.file/0421834/L/
