Massive oil tank explosion filmed from 2 km away

Massive oil tank explosion filmed from 2 km away

Shockwave hits camera man moments after the explosion. Goes to show that light moves much faster than sound. Footage is thought to be of an arms depot fire in Ulyanovsk, Russia 2009.

Sound travels at roughly 340meters per second at 20 Degrees C. It took 5 seconds for the shockwave to reach the camera. So thats 5x340 = 1.7km away from the blast! Awsome
