ground shaking?

Feels like it when 3 jet fighters take off a$$hole to bellybutton ! Stuck here @ Hanscom AFB Fampcamp with 6 inches of snow yesterday and are right next to airstrip. Don't usually have much military flights but the guard weekend warriors come in for lunch. LOL We have a lot of civilian traffic here but when the RV starts shaking I know itsa fighter. Loving it.

Watching them at night with the afterburners on is a great show.

Lived just off base from Nellis AFB, NV for a number of years, never got tired of watching them and other fighter aircraft take off. Now far away from a flight line and still miss the sight.

Having worked on fighter aircraft for 40 years, working on assorted Air Force bases and living on them for many of those years I tend to not even notice the sound. Interestingly the new “stealth” generations are much noisier than the older fighters.

Our trailer was shaking yesterday afternoon here in Central FL. So much so, I jumped up and went outside. Definitely military but cloud cover prevented ID!

Rode submarines for living but had a chance to ride in P51 couple years back. Will always be glad I partially melted the credit card

The simulated strafing run coming in at probably 45 deg angle and pushing over 400 before leveling out about 50 feet off the runway and just about straight up at the other end is something I’ll never forget. Quite the rush.

Would love to do a jet but that may never be possible so was close enough.

With all the noise inside a sub I sleep through most things as well. Unless it is considered “abnormal” sound I sleep right through.

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.

They don't usually do a fly by but lately they have been when traffic permits. Always know when they do and love it.

Weirdest bird I have seen here is super high level NASA . Wingspan so wide could not use taxieway here. And bulbous engines.

PS Had 7" of wet snow sat nite.

Sounds like possibly a U-2 with the big fuel tanks out on the wings?

I was a flight instructor on a T-38 for four years. I loved it when we were able to make a max performance take off. What a rush. Being on the ground when someone else was doing it was awesome. You'll never forget the sound of the after burners.

Wow! Talking about Jest Engine Noise. My best memory of working on The F-4 Phantom was when we launched the entire 8th TFW to go north for Linebacker I and then again for Linebacker II. 4 ship launches every few minutes for almost 30 minutes. We had another wing for help but can't remember it it was the 49th, the 366th TFW or some other fighter wing from the States.
