Turbojet Powered Wind Instrument

To accompany the buzz bomb pipe organ.
  [vote for,

Take a 50 foot or so long 2 or 3 foot diameter metal tube, attach a turbojet onto one end and drill 12" diameter holes in the proper configuration to create a giant flute. Attach remote controlled flaps to cover the holes that can open and close. The control could be in the form of a flute shaped device with switches on it or a simple keyboard.

Play a "flute" accompaniment to a song played on the previously suggested buzz bomb pipe organ that would be heard for miles.

Unlike the buzz-bomb pipe organ, this would be a bit more practical.

1- You can buy surplus after-burner equipped turbo jet engines off the shelf. 2- Metal pipe likewise is readily available. 3- And the best part, there might be business model for this as a feature at racing events where people come to see and hear loud fast things. Tour the world playing the national anthem of various countries with this thing,

Needs an explosion base drum set too.

       Tell us about the reed.

       You're getting your sound from the turbojet itself.

       At some level of sound output, it will be cheaper just to machine-gun people in the ear.

       Isn't that the name of a village in Norfolk, just south of Bunsen Magna?
