    allegedly it's something to do with jet planes flying low, dumping fuel and then lighting it as they fly off.... ?

    After-burners maybe? I believe they work by injecting fuel directly into the exhaust (for lack of a better term) for added power.

    Very cool shots, nonetheless. Looks like an interesting festival.

    Lol. I was thinking the same thing. Hopefully it is just the afterburners because I doubt standing under dumped fuel isn't the way people like to end their lives. :wink:

    Just for reference, jet fuel is very similar to kerosene, you can toss a match into a bucket of it and the match will go out.
    Nothing like gasoline at all.
    BTW, love the pics.
