Wow, this is so cool. Here’s a MiG-29 fighter jet taking off from a runway and then immediately launching vertically into the sky. The takeoff looks completely normal and innocuous until the jet is a few feet off the ground and then it just zips up like it’s riding the world’s fastest invisible elevator.
You’re only a couple feet away from F-18 Hornets launching from an aircraft carrier. You hear the power of the fighter jets, feel the closeness of these flying killing machines and see the impossibility of their take off. The fighter jet starts moving and is in the air in such a short distance, it’s always unbelievable.
