Watch an FA-18 “Super Hornet” Break the Speed of Sound (video)
YouTube is chalk full of jaw dropping videos. However, not too many will compare to this one: a 30 second clip of an FA-18 “Super Hornet” breaking the sound barrier. The scene took place at Bethpage Federal Credit Union Airshow at Jones Beach On May 24th, 2009.
Be patient, because upon approach the jet isn’t traveling all that fast, relatively speaking of course. About half way into the frame the pilot puts the “pedal to the metal.” We’ve never seen this before, so pardon us when we say that the footage is surreal in nature. One has to wonder what happens to all the windows in the surrounding area?!
