So I'm sitting 15 stories up on the 16th floor in highpark watching an F-18 pilot pull some CRAZY shit out of his ass... High G climbs While rolling... Pulling out inverted and just fuckin' gunnin' it... then He disapears for a bit... I've got the binoculars out trying to pinpoint exactly where he is... all of a sudden I can here him out on side of my building... BEHIND it!! Dude comes TEARING around the building on a Crazy bank fully showing off... Everyone in highpark village is out on their balco's screaming and cheering!! It was Dope... he totally circled around the village as a last pass knowing everyone was watching!


Just when I think the show is over and my mind is blown... They park the rinky dinky Hornet... and our Screams the aptly named Eagle!!!!!



WOW!!!!


The F-15 is the most beautiful peice of machinery to EVER fly in combat!!!!


I LOVE THIS JET!!!!!!


And Holy fuckin' POWER !!!

*tim tailor* grunt grunt grunt *tim tailor*


This thing is already rockin our appartments louder then the Hornet did and it's not even up close yet!!!!



YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!



I love flying things!!!!!!

I've been told that the vulcan cannon on an F14 (same as the one in the A10 I believe) can stall the F14 midair while it fires due to the recoil

(F-14s do carry vulcans.. left nose)

Thats crazy.

The A10 has a 30mm chain cannon that is the size of a volkswagon jetta. The shells can penetrate most tank rear/side/top armor.

they may all look and sound snazzy, but they are pretty well useless against suicide bombers

they're pretty effective at wiping out the people that charge suicide bombers :)

there are two guys now chasing each other around over lake Ontario... doing crazy near verticle climbs full afterburner then doing what looks to be a simulated dog fight... But I don't know what kind of plane they are...


Single engine/verticle stabiliser fin, small and quick... Not F-16... bigger and more angular...


they look russian... hehe



I love the front fins on that thing... how the whole fin moves not just a flap! Dope... and when they point 'em almost srtaight down when thei landing to slow the thing down...

and the big ECM tail piece! Dope!

the snow birds flew over my balcony last year (which has nothing above it but open sky) no more than 40 feet above me...it was fucking mental.

in fact, their first pass was what woke me up in the first place...


hope they do it again this year...the hornet too.
