Default OT Cool Picture, Jet Fighter

This was sent to me my a Captain with US Air. He advises it is for real.

Check out the two helments in the cockpit.

SORRY -- I'm not sure I buy it. The elevators are in a climb setting. If the plane was flying that close to the ship I don't think it would be in a climb. Also the plane looks a little cut off in some areas.

I dunno, could be real. When a plane is on its side like that, the elevator becomes the rudder and the rudder becomes the elevator. He could be banking a right turn behind the end of the carrier deck.

If he was turning that hard the caption would probably read...
"Just before clipping the flight deck with his wingtip and destroying his Tomcat..."
