For my 1000th post I would like to award someone a bronze membership,
heres the deal, post military photos, on Friday next week I will pick the coolest one that I like ( hey it's my contest ) and award the poster a free bronze membership.
If anyone else wants to jump in and offer a free membership they are welcome to, they can just pick the one they like. Not to scientific but hey I like to keep it simple.



edit: not very many people seem to wanna play so I'm changing the rules to ANY COOL PIC,[/ does not have to be military.

No need to post anymore, olyarms has posted the clear winner right here.



Gotta love the flying bodies.

I do not think this image is cool, but I do think it is important to remember those Marines, Sailors, Soldiers, and Airmen that have made the ultimate sacrifice.

I'm not 100% but I do believe that photo was determined to be a fake early last year.

I think it was proven REAL, ive seen it in the military times also. Those guys have set down the SOF soldiers in a lot of far worse situations. This is just something minor for those guys to do. They're just lucky the house didnt cave in.

on the caption on this pic, it was taken off the deck of the USS America CV 66
Cpt Snodgrass, was Pilot in Charge and was not grounded, it was a staged event.







"The Shot," USS America, 1989
Photo used courtesy of Dale Snodgrass

That shot off of the America is very widely used….most people seem to initially think it is either an edited photo, or a risky maneuver. What was it?

It's not risky at all with practice…it was my opening pass to a Tomcat tactical demonstration at sea. I started from the starboard rear quarter of the ship, at or slightly below flight deck level. Airspeed was at about 250 knots with the wings swept forward. I selected afterburner at about 1/2 mile behind and the aircraft accelerated to about 325-330 knots. As I approached the ship, I rolled into an 85 degree angle of bank and did a 2-3 g turn, finishing about 10- 20 degrees off of the ship's axis. It was a very dramatic and, in my opinion, a very cool way to start a carrier demo. The photo was taken by an Aviation Boson's Mate who worked the flight deck on the USS America. Just as an aside...the individual with his arms behind his back is Admiral Jay Johnson, the immediate past Chief of Naval Operations for the Navy.
