Danadmiral Hello. Because this plane is not a shipboard machine, we do not wear a tail hook. It is a land transportation machine called Kawasaki C-2.

Leon Kay Hello. Thank you for seeing the picture here.

serge LOTH Hello. This plane is not a Grumman but a Kawasaki C - 2 transportation aircraft belonging to the Air Self Defense Force.

Uwe - I particularly like the effect of and manner in which the heat wave behind this jet aircraft has obscured the background rather nicely... keeping the viewer's visual focus fixed on the aircraft itself!!!

*F*I*V*E* Stars!!!

Warning - you're going to get about 58 IDIOTS out there thinking they are brilliant while telling you this isn't a C2 Greyhound as they don't have any idea or won't bother to know that this is the fault of Flightaware's data, not yours.

Very nice. Love it that these birds are still around along with the B717.

I think the C-130 elevators are at the bottom, not the top, of the rudder.

NOT! NON! not photo shopped--from an airshow!
Love it great pic!

Hey my dad would have been a passenger going over the Hump--he talks about it sometimes..Assigned to the India/Burma/China group 1943-1945
He was with Gen Joe (Vinegar Joe) Stillwell.

Thanks for the sound effects does sound great.

Written on 10/19/2018 by marylou anderson

A singularly , & instantly recognizable aircraft.
Nice pic!

Written on 10/19/2018 by marylou anderson

airbus? I looked around online and found 1 Airbus A400M flying for German Military
but I also found an article from May about 6 C-13o Hercules aircraft sold to Germany for use in a German French JOINT military transport squadron
The aircraft pictured sure looks more like a Hercules than a 'Bus

Markings indicate it would be Wing commander's aircraft.

such pictures are only possible on a very very clear day. The MD11 in backround is 4,8 kilometers away!!

My father was a Hump pilot, 3rd Combat Cargo Group flying out of Impal and Ledo, India, and eventually Myitkyina, Burma, after it was recaptured. He flew C-47s for drop supply missions supporting the British 36th Division in the jungle, and when his unit started flying the Hump, they switched out to 46s. He spoke highly of the plane, which he flew 60 round trips to China. If I'm not mistaken, it has hydraulic assisted controls which required a lot less effort than the 47. Here's a good book on the mission: Hump: America's Strategy for Keeping China in World War II (Williams-Ford Texas A&M University Military History Series) Plating, John D.
Fun fact: the path from India to China over the Hump was known as "The Aluminum Trail".

From the tail flashing, this appears to be a B-52H assigned to the 917th Bomb Wing, an Air Force Reserve unit at Barksdale AFB near Shreveport, Louisiana. The reversed shadow effect on the BD indicates this is the Wing's flagship.

just WOW!

Initial models were expensive and much slower than competition. Early models had early version PT6s. Only 9 still airworthy, Beech/Raytheon will purchase and immediately cut spar in half, they don't want to support it anymore.
Piaggio Avanti took concept and refined it with big, new PT6s. Avanti a speed-demon.

Airbus??

Written on 10/19/2018 by Bill Butler

This one's not quite supersonic.

Written on 10/19/2018 by Bill Butler

I would say yes to TF-100. Two man cockpit. It certainly is a 100, with its refueling probe deployed.

C'est bien photoshop. Depuis quand en formation serrée l'avion de devant est dessous. Ni l'un ni l'autre ne se voit...

What do you meen..... do you like/need the EXIF data...??

Written on 10/19/2018 by murliFA

Can't comment on the specifics of your question pohlcatace14, but Concorde only got flew supersonic after it was over the Atlantic and beyond Ireland, yet the sonic Boom would be heard heard back in Cornwall and Devon (England). Everyone would smile and say "Concorde's opened up." The reason it didn't go supersonic is for the reason you've stated, everyone's windows would get blown out

aircraft B-767 !this sate is too much bug !!!

Hey there, I’m very new to the whole aviation world, and really enjoy all of these great shots. Question for the community though: Do they allow the aircraft in this Fort Worth Airshow to break the sound barrier? I live near Traverse City MI where the Blue Angels come every other year for an Airshow at the National Cherry Fest and I have always heard they specifically have to keep below the sound barrier as to not blow everyone’s windows out. Is the location of this Fort Worth show not one that has a lot of development around to worry about such a thing when the barrier is broken?

Written on 10/19/2018 by pohlcatace14

"canard" design making the airplane essentially stall proof. And full composite materials and twin turboprop pusher engines.
too many innovations?

Written on 10/19/2018 by Luc Barbier

Boeing B-52 Stratofortress with its height turbojet engines.
See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_B-52_Stratofortress for all details !

Funny optical illusion and a perspective effect : The fish seems to be a fisrt whole airplane, adjoigned to a second "white and blue" plane...
But... where are their respective left and right wings ?

Written on 10/19/2018 by Luc Barbier

Thanks for sharing a nice photograph. We hope to be flying on one of these when visiting the French Polynesian Islands next year. My wife and I are very reluctant to fly on Air France again.

Thank you for a nice shot. We observed many flying fish as our cruise ship approached Bridgetown, Barbados. None of those were however even close to this size!

Creating and painting eye catching aircraft livery appears to have become a new profession!
