Fuel is just injected into the hot exhaust where it ignites producing this spectacular result.

Go to:http://f-111.net where you can download a video of a "dump and burn" over Sydney at the Olympic closing ceremony.  Wow!

Certainly is spectacular at night - the RAAF did it over Brisbane for RiverFire the last couple of years. Presumably it must be fairly safe otherwise they'd never do it over heavily populated city areas at (fairly) low altitude.

Does anyone else have a problem with accessing the site listed http://www.f-111.net , it goes to the site but once in, it freezes? Well it does for me anyway.
