Unbelieveable angle that I've never seen before in any picture taken of a Hornet. Great detail on the image also.

The condensation coming from the front of the plane is caused by vortex generators which create a mass of low pressure above the wing thus increasing the lift the wing produces at high angles of attach.....Cool picture which captures this aerodynamic principle

Those wingtips looks like they're about to break with all that G-Force.

Beautiful picture.

Anyone else notice the hydralic fluid service door on the right side of the aircraft is open? It's just aft of the flap trailing edge.

The only thing missing from this picture is the heavenly smell of jet petroleum & the thundering symphony from those twin F404-GE-400s. Thanks, Geoff, for sharing a Great capture here.
