Oh, they are loud... But as guy on the ground, they are BELOVED. Harriers and Cobras are great for sending fire from the sky.

All combat jets have one aspect about them that makes jaws drop everywhere.
F/A-18s getting flung off of carriers, the sheer size of the B-52 and AC-130, and the massive gun of an A-10...
But the Harrier takes the cake when it comes to psychological warfare.
Because a fighter jet is the LAST thing you'd expect to see coming to a dead stop in mid-air...and stay there.

Sweet. It was taken Feb 21st 2008 at El Centro, NAS. If you know the pilot, I can get him a print if he wants.

lol...

i know all the pilots, but the problem is, they all fly all the jets, none of them have a certain set jet, so if you could get me a date and time of the taken shot, i can look in the archives and find out. either way works =]

Anyone who calls themselves an EX Marine was either discharged dishonorably or didn't care enough to apply themselves...

Anyways *coughs*

Amazing shot =] Makes me wish I took my camera on the base when I went to see my cousins.

Now, I'm not a Marine myself, but from what I understand of the Marines, there is no such thing as a "former" Marine; "Once a Marine, always a Marine", as they say... ;)

Bitchin' shot of that Harrier, anyway... :D

I was told no Ex-Marines, former was acceptable.

Necromancy!

I'm digging this point back up because I came across something on Wikipedia, of all places...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Marine_Corps#Culture

"Marines and those familiar with Marine Corps tradition will often object to the use of the term "former Marine" or "ex-Marine" because Marines are inculcated with the ethos "Once a Marine, always a Marine". The terms "former" or "ex" refer to something that once was, but is no longer, as Col Wesley L. Fox, USMC (Ret.) states in the welcoming theater video at the National Museum of the Marine Corps."

There's the answer to that, then...
