As a fitting monument to speed, Jeremy decides to create a shrine in his garden. He thinks a Lightning Supersonic Jet Fighter - the fastest jet ever flown by the RAF - would be the ultimate mark of respect. His wife, on the other hand, has other ideas! Great clip from the series 'Speed', presented by Jeremy Clarkson.

      I’m surprised wargaming hasn’t sued the bbc or the other way around for the game world of warplanes 😂😂

      Don't worry about what your then wife thinks about a plane, you soon dumped her for a blonde tart who's leg spread wider than any wing span

      Well, J., the brite spot is that you lost 35-pounds. Good show, or perhaps merely starving. As to the bird (the plane), perhaps the Iranians won't notice it next month when they plan their offensive. (Do paint it green.) Carry on. JL

      I think Mrs Clarkson took it remarkably well all things considered. I would have needed a hard hat, bulletproof vest and a tank to get that past the Mrs and even then I don't think I would make it!
