Fighting an Oil Well Fire  A Hungarian MIG jet engine that was used to extinguish the flames of some oil fires with high-pressure air, akin to blowing out a candle. These turbines were also equipped with three hose nozzles for simultaneously spraying the flames with seawater and chemicals. The procedure was very noisy. An athey wagon is in the background.
