"Jet blast of departing and arriving aircraft can cause severe physical harm resulting in extreme bodily harm and/or death."

So severe physical harm can result in extreme bodily harm?

And/or death.

Another thing you don't want to see at the airport.

That’s a little scary. This one, though, is pure comedy...

That bumpy landing. Read Ernest Gann's 'Fate Is The Hunter' - an aviation classic. He describes his test DC2 landings (early 30s) as a trainee pilot.

"The second landing has the men in the control tower reaching for the alarm buttons. It is not a landing but an endless series of angry collisions between the airplane and earth, each separated by spasms of engine roar ... incredibly, the plane is still in one piece when we traverse the entire airport and execute a final, deliriously drunken bounce into the air again"
