Storyline

In this episode of MythBusters, Jamie and Adam pull out the artillery when they shoot a bullet hole into the shell of an aircraft and find out if that single shot will cause explosive decompression -- and destruction of the aircraft. They'll find out if two hunters could use a loaded .22 gun cartridge as a replacement fuse in a car's ignition or if it will backfire in all the wrong places. And they take a myth from the movies when they see if it's possible to rip a car off it's rear axle... just wait and see. They don't just tell the myths, they put them to the test.
