all I know is it's probably not 50 feet away like it appears n the picture. the over pressure or whatever would rupture that guys ears. notice he's calmly watching the thing as if it were farther away. I really doubt the average person would be so unexcited when an f18 buzzes their condo/apt 20 feet off their balcony.

Also once while on a mtb ride near mammoth lakes ca, we were blessed by two rich guys flying an F86 and mig 17 or 19 throught the high sierra canyons at tree top level having a friedly afternoon "dogfight".
The F86 was trying to shake the mig. it was quite the sight to have these two classic aircraft blast by just a couple hundred feet above the trees in the middle of the forest on a sunny saturday afternoon.

funny how all the americans on here are like:
"*snip* Yeah! we have the BEST AIRFORCE AND ARMY IN THE WORLD!!!. YEAH!!"
Ive seen the americans abroad, when they shoot people and blow them up, its the same. "*snip* yeah you blew him to bits!!" and laughing, "I love this"
Thats why the english army has no respect for them, they dont do that. i have even talked to soldeirs about them and its alway the same, They dont like them, and they dont like working with them.

Add to that... the Americans might have perfected flying, but they didn't invent the jet, they actually blatantly stole it from the British, in a "you give us som, we give you some."
Unfortunately, the British gave first and the Americans forgot about the deal.
