Yep! that's a Tomcat!
Had one do that on cruise.
The bang was SO loud, thought it had ruptured the fuel cell in our parked
Felt like someone hit you in the chest
with a bat!
When I was in Basic Training at Ft.Dix they would come into McGuireAFB every now and then and when they took off they would pul those wings back and "BOOM"!! You could se the glass in the windows shake. Scare the crap out of ya the first few times. It was awsome though.
I spent Four years at RAF Lakenheath and my shop was about 200yds from the end of runway. When the E model F-15s took off in tandem it would shake the building something fierce, and they took off at afterburner due to takeoff weight. It was really cool at night during the winter!!!
Damn Computer won't let me down load it!!!!! I never get over watching Tomcats showing their stuff. Last cruise I was on, one of my Tomcats went Between the carrier and a Cruiser that was right along the Port side. The Jet was below the Flight deck, dropping Flares and a making wake in the water as it passed the ship.
Whats cool is your watching for the jet and the first thing you see is vapor trails around the jet away off and next the jets there and there is NO noise until the jet is passed and BAM you get smacked in the chest Hard.... Man it is SO cool.
If any one wants to see it I will email them the video. I also got others.
Nasty I e-mailed you 2 video clips yesterday from work did you get them?
ejobe I'll send you them when I go back to work tomorrow.
I'll also try to post them here. If I'm unsucessful, Bob could you post them for me buddy.
