Trail of Desert Dust

Thursday, 2nd August 2007 by

Check out this car absolutely rocketing through the desert in Afghanistan - the dust plume it's kicking up is over a kilometre long!

This is actually Afghanistan's Helmand Province, which as well as playing a pivotal part in the War against Terror is also likely responsible for as much as 42% of the world's opium production.

So basically there's any number of reasons why this car might be travelling at such a speed out here.

Thanks to H20s.
