When I was a teenager, my Physics teacher at school told us about his GCSE
metalwork project. Apparently he built a pulse jet engine as found on the
V1 flying bombs. IIRC this was strapped down onto a pram chassis. He said
lighting involved a group of pupils with blowlamps and when it did get
running, it shot out across the school playing field, somersaulted and
burst into flames.

Sounds like great fun but I can't imagine the lawyers allowing like this
