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.
I am not possitive on the ID or info of the mishap
