OK - Let's get this started again!!!

Hey guys,

After seeing some of the great plane pictures in cinq's Bigger Truck thread, I though hey - why not a super-thread dedicated to the products Breitling is know for - Aeronautics. After all - it is the instrument for the professionals!

So, lets see your pictures of all things that fly! My 2 favorites:

The F-14:

Top speed: 1.88 Mach
Cruise: .72 Mach
Max weaponry: 13,000 lbs
Ceiling: 53,000 + feet

And the f-18:

Details (for the 18E Super Hornet):
Max Speed: 1.8 Mach
Cruise Speed: 1.0 Mach
Max Weaponry: 17,750 lbs
Ceiling: 45,000 ft.

And I gotta throw a mention to this one, the F-22 Raptor. Assembled right here in Atlanta....

Max Speed: 1.8 Mach
Cruise Speed: 1.5 Mach (super-cruise)
Max Weaponry: unknown
Ceiling: classified
OK, let see yours! :p :p

Found it!

B-58 Hustler, Flightline, Chanute AFB, August 1964

Loved to watch them land. Concord had a similar look, like a big bug.

Too bad the B58 had a bad habit of flipping end over end at supersonic speeds.

Still one of my all time favorites.
