Video: The Most Amazing Jet Take-Off I Have Ever Seen


Lockheed would call this a "software malfunction" and needs to do a little more "regressive testing".

Good demo of power-to-weight ratio of this aircraft! And some unbelievable stability control.

If he didn't come out of the loop wings-level, it probably would have been bad news, maybe taking some of the carrier with him!

Flying through your own exhaust can lead to equipment malfunctions, too, but fortunately he avoided that.

This is the most unbelievable piece of flying you will ever see in your
life. This is how a supremely well-trained US Navy pilot with ice water running in his veins instead of blood, fully regains control of his $70 million fighter
jet, after a problematic vertical take-off attempt that would have killed you or me.

D'OH! It's from a game. The video looked real enough at first. Last time I take a tip from my dad.


  1. THis is a recording of Battlefield 2, not a real flight recording.

  2. Seriously?

    That's such a bummer.

    I need to play more video games.
