I can remember getting a very close up view of some F-15's that were up at the Red Deer airshow back in the late 80's, early 90's. Only thing I was at my parents lake property which is about 60km's north west of Red Deer. The jets flew right over the lake and they seemed like they were giving us all on the lake our own private show, they flew about as slow as they could and about as low as I think they felt safe, about 200 ft up, close enough that the last pic was about the detail I could see with my eyes, after a slow circle, they throttled up and they were out of sight in seconds, very cool.

Their awesome specs aside, they are definitely the coolest looking plane ever.

hmmm, I don't know, to me the SR-71 Blackbird is the coolest thing that has ever flown, so far. Particularly knowing that this plane was designed in the late 50s.

Blackbirds were also pretty awesome looking birds but since it's just my opinion, my opinion stands until such time that I'm of the opinion that I should change my opinion.
