Jumbo Jet No Limits Part Deux!

I may have forgot to mention that I am on FaceBook, if ya get the chance add me as your friend. One of my FB friends is TJ Weaver who has been working on a project of the Jumbo Jet in “No Limits” which is a roller coaster creation software. We first posted a “No limits” picture back in may of 2010. See our blog post “Jumbo Jet, No Limits”. He sent me a couple of picture before the holidays saying that a “No Limits” video would be available the first part of 2011 and he delivered. Let take a virtual ride on the Jumbo Jet:

I would like to thank TJ for allowing me to post this really cool “No Limits” Jumbo Jet recreation. Looks as good as the real thing! Great Job TJ! Let’s Ride!

Jet Star 2 in Elektrėnai in Lithuania

Just when you think that there is nothing else about a Jet Star or Jumbo Jet that you can blog about, the internet rears it’s head and drops a load of information in your lap. Seems that a Jet Star 2 was in Gorky Park (Thanks for the heads up January Hinkie) in the late 60’s and Could be one of the 1st Jet Star 2 ever made:Then it seems that this Jet Star was moved to Elektrėnai in Lithuania. I found some great pictures of the Jet Star 2 (Thanks to Richard B. at themeparks.ie for allowing us to post) at Vaikų Pasaulis:The most interesting thing about this Jet Star 2 is that it has a radar antenna just like the Jumbo Jet. Again Thanks to Richard B. for allowing us to post these great pictures of the Jet Star 2 at Vaikų Pasaulis in Elektrenai, Lithuania. You can see more of this park at themeparks.ie!
Could there possible be more? You are correct there is! Lots of videos at YouTube:

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a hundred times, are you ready to ride a Jumbo Jet or Jet Star 2? I am! Let’s Ride!
