if the plane was really flying, wouldn't we see image distortion towards the aft of the plane because of the heat coming out of the jets?

i think they just photochopped the gear out from under a taxiing jet, though they did a good job at it

The background would be motion blurred. They could have done that in PS too.

Photoshop. You can see under neath where some of the seems in the concrete are blurred and some aren't.

It has been chopped and did a really good job. I don't think I could do it that good.

Photoshop...a little work with the cloning brush.

Not if you used a fast enough shutter speed, But Yeah its PS

Thanx guys.. I was wondering.. I thought maybe it could be real with a very high speed shutter. The people that post over on airliners.net are pretty anal about stuff like that. I thought it could have been real, but that's cutting it pretty gd close...

If they used a very quick shutter speed, perhaps it could be real. But there would have to be some sort of exhaust distortion. However, if they photoshopped the jet while taxiing, he'd be sucking up fod right now.

I'm leaning towards PS myself though. ETA: The_Alchemist is right, Airliners.net has some pretty strict requirements when it comes to what they host. They would've called BS if it was a BS pic.

Here's two pics I took of some F-15Cs from the 12th FS at Elmendorf AFB at Arctic Thunder 2004. No ground blur. These weren't with a dig cam, and my scan fu is weak.

Just before the belly-landing? Probably scared out of the sky by the mighty F-22.

If it got on to airliners.net it's probably real.


I have a number of photos on airliners.net and I can tell you they are absolute bitches when it comes to their screening process and will catch any minor flaw in the photo and reject it, not to mention a big photoshop job. Just my $0.02.

That pilot must have trouble walking with that pair of bowling balls stuck between his legs. There are some great shots over at Airliners.net of other amazing low passes. As low as some of those guys are it would be hard to pull up without dragging the tail.

The problem with the exhaust distortion and this picture is that there isn't enough of an exhaust field to examine... it's possible that the plane is cookin along at a few hundred knots and the pic is taken with a high speed shutter.

Looks like a very good chop to me. Refueling probe extended? Uh, why? The original of the jet was probably snapped by a wingman during in flight refueling testing/practice. Look at the very tip of the tail of the jet, it looks chopped, and the exhaust plume would distort the perfectly straight white stripe behind the jet.

It seems odd that they would be that close to the tarmac, if they were flying. Obviously, there are smarter men than I to observe that, but I think they would be a bit farther from the tarmac to be doing high speed runs of the low altitude nature...

Look where the exhaust should be blowing hard, the image does not blur where a lot of hot gas and flame should be flying. Someone chooped the wheels out. It must be noted these things have a reputation of plowing up airfields, so thier maybe a miniscule chance it is real.

What's that little bit of sky blue stuff near the "beaver tail" between the engines?
