A gas explosion in Moscow on Victory Day

Description

It's the evening of May 9, 2009 and the people of Moscow are celebrating Victory Day. But no fireworks can match the fantastic spectacle taking place on the ground: Namely an enormous explosion, the deafening roar of fire, and a 500 plus-foot flame shooting straight up. The explosion is from a rupture in a high-pressure gas pipeline. With the roar of several jet engines, a powerful stream of gas shoots out from underground then explodes in an incredible spectacle.
