I was sent a whole slew of pictures from the recent San Francisco Fleet Week and was blown away by the pictures taken of a fighter jet flying 20 feet over the water. It looks like the jet is levitating! (Or about to crash! But I think he meant to be that low.)
Okay, I'm probably going to be burned at the stake for being un-patriotic, but when they're doing these low-altitude fly-bys, it can be annoying and dangerous. I guess it's harmless enough over the water. Don't get me wrong, I love America, but don't forget freedom of expression is part of it, too. Just exercising my right!
You are right...I am sure the poor fish didn't appreciate having an afterburner engaging so close over their heads. I wonder if any top feeders got cooked? It also looked to me like it was low enough to hit one of the civilian boats in the background. A cool picture, though.
