I’m going to the Abbotsford Airshow in a few weeks with my friend Chris. I’m not terribly knowledgeable about aircraft, but I enjoy being able to get up close and personal with fighter jets in particular.
But maybe not this close (Gizmodo)….at least not when they are flying at several hundred miles an hour.
This image is taken looking out the back of a Hercules 130 cargo transport. They were filming the Eurofighter Typhoon, and apparently the director kept asking the pilot to come “closer…closer…”. Looking at the photo, I’d say the jet is perhaps three or so metres behind the cargo plane. Now *that’s* close 🙂
