The footage, shot during an event called Night on Fire, featured Shockwave demonstrating the pyrotechnic capabilities of its jet engines, which send chunks of asphalt flying into the air behind it.

The video ends with a demonstration of Shockwave's speed, which previously earned it a world record with a 376 mph run.

Another audience member at the Aug. 15 event, Justin Moore, captured video of Shockwave's demonstration from the rear and was struck in the nose by a piece of flying asphalt.
