If you like low level flights i found this interesting during a naval exercise, well i have several which have been filmed for evaluation but will not post any as its non existent.
This one was published on the net so i guess its open to public view.

Accidents happen, however we must remember that the F/A-18F has two engines, and additionally planes take the risk of ingesting a bird every time they fly - especially when taking off and landing, or at airshows. Accidents do not happen often.

At anyrate its an impressive picture but I agree that the angle makes it look much closer than it probably is.
Its also a AESA equpped bird judging by vents on the rear deck.

It might not be as close as it looks because of the camera lens. A telephoto shot would distort the appearance.

It's not as close as it looks. The picture was taken with a telephoto lens, creating what is known as "forced perspective" that makes it look as if the airplane is closer to the building than it actually is.
