Cool Mushroom Cloud

Apperently these guys packed that tube with sawdust so the propane took a while to reach the flare and then it all ignited.

I've witnessed something similar before. When I worked in a steel mill, they used conveyor belts to move coking coal into the blast furnace. There were workers (2) up there who made sure everything worked right. Well for the sake of the story, Beavis and Butthead (I can't remember their names) decided to have a smoke up in the little inspection shack about 1/2 way up to the furnace, about 60 feet up. Well, Beavis didn't remember that when the conveyor shaft isn't cleaned out, coal dust is about as explosive as pure hydrogen. Needless to say, they both had very bad days. The 'little shack' didn't have a piece left bigger than an apple.

A very young captain saw the most amazing mushroom cloud while eating his lunch.

That was some safety program they must have had. Sounds like some of that Western Reserve brilliance I used to hear in the Youngtown area.

That guy appears to be taking a very casual approach to turning on the gas. I guess he knows what he's doing ...
