The runway has dropped off and its just a good photo,right place right time,its in reheat so its going up not coming down,what I find odd is the saint on the tail,when i was with 16 sqn the saints,they had buccaneers,then went onto tornados,never had jags,very strange.

A visitor from Puerto Rico posted Sun August 8, 2010:
Looks like its actually running for take off.


A visitor from Brazil posted Sun January 24, 2010:
Much damages for the gear on the runway!! look the angle!! =O

A visitor from India posted Mon January 12, 2009:
The sight of the afterburners is one of the greatest images in aviation, and two on a beauty like Jaguar is amazing.

A visitor from United States posted Sat September 13, 2008:
Somebody tell the pilot that they payed for the whole a/c os he can feel free to use all of the landing gear.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun July 1, 2007:
Its actually a completely normal Jag display take off - just viewed on Waddingtons up and down sloping runway - the plane is probably already 5 feet high in reality, you can see the gear has already started to cycle closed - its just that the runway has dropped away and it looks like its still on the deck, but thats just a more local horizon!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue October 24, 2006:
Hehe, it kinda looks like a chicken trying to jump into the air. an amazing plane, and a powerfull shot.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu June 8, 2006:
Are you guys just ignorant? It's a takeoff! The comment blatantly says so. It's part of the Jaguar's display routine - yes, it CAN do this!

A visitor from Canada posted Sun June 4, 2006:
To answer your question visitor from India. This is more then likely a takeoff. Fighters would never land with full afterburner because afterburner can only be applied at full throttle there-for this is either a takeoff or aborted landing.

A visitor from India posted Thu February 16, 2006:
Amazing Shot! It's obvious, this plane is taking off, fighter planes wouldnt land with afterburners on, would they? Great Shot buddy!!

A visitor from United States posted Sun January 15, 2006:
This shot is unclear as to whether the plane is landing or taking off.It is also a photo of being close to the edge of disaster,which is why it holds our attention a bit longer than the average still shot.
