This F/A-18F Super Hornet ran off of the runway backwards after experiencing a blowout on landing. Notice the dirt flying from the elevators as it dug in!

Not often you see one of these running off the runway. Very interesting and a great capture.

Well Gentlemen, the dirt is not flying from the ailerons digging in but rather from the elevators. And the two Gents up front are having a free roller coaster ride.

Wonder what it would look like if this happened on the deck of an aircraft carrier? Great shot; the crew in the cockpit look like they're working out in
a simulator...

Great picture... I can tell you all I was a bit more scared than my first drill sargeant on this day.

You know the pilot has his hand on that little yellow handle between his legs, ready to bail! Great shot, once in a lifetime moment.5*****
