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.

The sight of the afterburners is one of the greatest images in aviation, and two on a beauty like Jaguar is amazing.

Somebody tell the pilot that they payed for the whole a/c os he can feel free to use all of the landing gear.

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!

Hehe, it kinda looks like a chicken trying to jump into the air. an amazing plane, and a powerfull shot.

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!

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.

Amazing Shot! It's obvious, this plane is taking off, fighter planes wouldnt land with afterburners on, would they? Great Shot buddy!!

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.
