    Thats a pretty scary picture...ejecting so close to the deck.

    Looks like the afterburner is on.

    Hope pilot made it.

    Easy now Otto. You start a new job next week and you don't want to 'get dizzy' the first day there.

    It's tough to see, but there was some lucky guy standing on the deck around the control tower! That had to be one heck of a seat for that show.
