Additional Info:

Allegedly This is what happens when a third stage fan disk on a F100-PW-100 engine fails.

This is why you need to have a jet engine in a hardened test cell for primary testing.

This is a minor failure compared to some I have seen, but most modern test cells have a water deluge system that is almost always tripped in a modern test cell engine failure.

First in rear (afterburner) view, then from front.

Note the guy leaving the test cell just before the mishap.

Video is poor, it is old.
No Audio.
I am not possitive on the ID or info of the mishap
