I was at an air show the other day, when I hear a C-130 taking off, I figure, "Wow, big deal... *yawn*"

A few seconds later I get an earload of rocket engines... ROCKETS... not jets...

I turn around just in time to see this:




So loud, I almost fell flat on my ass, but BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Correct term is "JATO" (Jet-Assisted TakeOff)...don't know why.
But it IS a fantastic sight when a Herc lights those off.
