Executive Decision F-117 Take Off Sene

Fri Mar 24, 2006 9:05 am

In the movie Executive Decision when the F-117 or (Aroar in the movie) took off the back of it's lighted off like after burner. Now I know the F-117 do not have after burner, so is this just a heat reaction to F-117 engines powering up or just a movie prop.

Last I checked, the F-117 dosent have a docking port on its back either... just wouldnt look cool if the military jet didnt take-off with flames shooting out its arse.

That was some ficticious stealth called "Remora" if you were paying attention. Besides in the movie the thing went supersonic, the real plane would shatter at those speeds.
The meaning of life is curiosity; we were put on this planet to explore opportunities.
