Jet Engine Used to Extinguish Kuwait Oil Fires

I’ve seen photos and there is a brief clip of it in the Imax movie here about the oil fires.

The Hungarians replaced the turret from an old Russian tank with 2 turbines from a Mig 21. Water is injected in the exhaust, they throttle up and distinguish the fire.

For more interesting uses of jet engines and where I found this video see this post.
