I wish I knew more about this photo… This seems either nuts or a very interesting perspective.

    The FA-18 Hornet can produce more thrust than it weighs and so can not only go 90° up can accelerate as well! Thanks for sharing this photo 😎

    There are old pilots. There are bold pilots. There are no old, bold pilots. (Chuck Yeager?)

    +keith olszewski​​ Chuck is the man. He goes up every year in a modern fighter plane and breaks to sound barrier. Last time he went he yelling at the pilot as he got in the cockpit of a F-15 saying…."Everytime I get in here there's more gauges!! AoA display??!! If you're a pilot and don't know your AoA without using a gauge you shouldn't be a pilot!!"…young USAF pilot just laughing and shaking his head. Freaking old gangster that Chuck.

  20. Michael Richards 27 Nov 2015 Reply

    +Ike Rouse Not Super Hornet – Regular one A-C Model.

  21. Ike Rouse 27 Nov 2015 Reply

    Yeah ok, they have so many versions of them. The last version is the growler i believe

  25. Michael Richards 27 Nov 2015 Reply

    +Ike Rouse the Growler is the 2 seat electronic warefare version called the EA-18G. The Super hornet comes in single seat FA-18E and tandem cockpit version which is the FA-18F.

    +Michael Richards you sure know about your military jets, almost time for retirement for these jets. Or keep selling them overseas to NATO nations. Still better than most USSR/ Russian jets

  28. Michael Richards 27 Nov 2015 Reply

    Thanks +Ike Rouse the E/F will be around quite a while, there's nothing really in the pipeline that can fully replace it. F-35 will pick up some of the slack. But the F18 will probably be around at least another 10 and possibly 20 years…

  29. Ike Rouse 27 Nov 2015 Reply

    Keep upgrading with jamming equipment and so on! F-18 H,I,J etc etc.. Time to replace that B-52 Stratto with next generation also B-1 and B1B! Only so many upgrades you can do

  32. Ike Rouse 27 Nov 2015 Reply

    100 years by then! Two generations.. Rolling Thunder, Run Gookers Run

  33. Ike Rouse 27 Nov 2015 Reply

  37. Matthew Sharp 27 Nov 2015 Reply

    +keith olszewski Let's hope not. The LRS-B should be in service for 30 years by 2050 hopefully. Northrop Grumman admitted to having a "mature" prototype. I'm pretty sure it's already flying. And was caught above TX already.

  39. Matthew Sharp 27 Nov 2015 Reply

    I still can't imagine the balls it took to do this!! He is so freaking close to that rock face. Most pilots go over the mountain not up and over. I'd love to see a video of this. Doesn't even look like he has enough room to flip it over to make sure he don't skip it off the rocks. 99.9999% of pilots would never attempt that shit. Lol….just insane.

  40. Matthew Sharp 27 Nov 2015 Reply

    If that was a 2 seater and I was in the back seat….I would have ejected. Fuck that. Probably hot girls with cameras taking this picture. Pilot probably died in a pussy avalanche when he landed. Show off

    80 Billion for 100 long range strike bombers by 2020.. Wholly shit snacks! Military over the poor & starving people of the nation.

  42. Matthew Sharp 27 Nov 2015 Reply

    +Ike Rouse I highly doubt 100 will be in service. I'm think 5-10 by 2020. And by then it'll probably be entering service as the LRS-B Block 30. Lol

    Great camera angle, he is nowhere near the rock face. Probably half a kilometer behind it in free air. Ground effect alone would throw him away from the wall.

  68. John Birch 7 Dec 2015 Reply

    Looks like real BUT shot with some kind of telephoto lens or f-stop to trash the perspective. That aircraft is no where near that rock. I assure you if the pilot really tried this, and it was his lucky day, he would be killed instantly as he struck the cloud made from rock. DEAD! If unlucky he'd make the climb, get the pic, get the girls or guys he wants to bed, have the pic go viral, be summoned to a head shed at least two sheds above his. At said shed he will be told to shed his uniform and will then have his nightmare begin. AKA An out of uniform experience, out the base gate in civies clutching $200 in 20's, a ticket to his home of record, and a bad conduct discharge. In civilian speak he's got a felony conviction that will follow him wherever he tries to settle. And each day he will curse God for allowing him to live that day at the mountain.

    My guess is that if this photo is legit, then this Swiss F/A-18 is between (but out in front of) two separate cliff faces. That is, one cliff face is to the aircraft's right, and the other is to its left. (Note the air flow in front of the cliff at the bottom of the photo.)

    Sorry, both this and the last post are not actually by Kezanza, but I am certain that Kenanza will not mind. We know each other well enough.

    Wow I like.

  73. There isn't any reason to dought this photo, as someone else said it's probably a lot to do with the angels and the cliff and where it is-as well as the other fella said F 18 is at least and definitely with no ordnance and probably only about 1500 lbs of fuel would be at the least a 1 to 1 weight to thrust ratio -but in this configuration I would guess more like LBS to(close)to M/T=1 to-4 -and you can tell from the condensing flow over the wing, an the elevator(stabulator) that this in my opinion is authentic -and as far as regulation's I'm guessing that the plane probably is 500 ft from any contact -so no foul there -years ago in northern England there is a Vally that pilots would fly down at about a 45 degree attitude for more then a mile, and it was open and wide plus deep,(sounds like a different description) the people that lived close to the base would stand on the hillside and Snap pictures -it looked like a line of F-16s & 15s were flying super less then a 100 ft from terrain, with people present,-but all in the way it was "STAGED" and I'm thinking that's probably what we are seeing here -NO MATTER WHAT IT -IS OR WAS -IT'S ONE COOL PICTURE -#callsign @bigfigs #*gettinhigh
