This appears to be real, but, what's the cause?
Aircraft is a DeHavilland Vampire on takeoff from a small airfield, but the runway's surface disintegrates from jet blast

Is the Vampire's jet blast that strong? Or is it weak/old tarmac which is being pushed over the limit of adhesion?
I suspect the field would be closed for repairs becuase of this damage, and the the runway's now lack of smoothness, but could that plane land again right away? If the loose bits were picked up? Would it have to land on the grass verge instead?
Would this have happened with other aircraft on the same runway? Or is the vampire special?
Plane's registration number is WZ507
