Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Sean: (back in TIV for the first few days of chasing while TIV 2's in the shop) We're going to have to chase in this until Tuesday. But, you know what? I'm kind of happy to be chasing in this vehicle, I am. 'Cause this vehicle moves, and I want to chase in a vehicle that moves. This vehicle is like your old sweetheart, the one you should have married.

  • NOTES (2)

    • The first tornado intercepted by Team Dominator was an EF0 (erroneously identified in the episode as an EF2) which touched down just south of Crawford, OK on April 26, 2009. The second tornado that developed northeast of Crawford as the original died was an EF2. Neither tornado caused much damage, though the second destroyed a mobile home.

    • Reed's team TVN are in a new iron plated vehicle this season named the "SRV Dominator". He tells Joel that he thinks it can hold its ground under winds of 260 mph. He actually got the chance to test the vehicle on the show Mythbusters alongside Sean Casey's TIV 2. The Dominator was subjected to 250 mph winds from a Boeing 747 jet's engine to simulate the force of an EF5 tornado. The vehicle was pushed about 50 ft, but did not flip over onto from the wind pressure.
