Saturday Special: performance takeoffs!

Today I thought I’d share with you some videos of high-performance takeoffs. While I may wax poetic about the majesty of old warbirds, more modern fighter aircraft can do some jaw-dropping things.

For example, this Eurofighter was spotted making some max-performance takeoffs out of Prestwick in Scotland. This is so awesome that I practically needed to change my pants after I saw it.

Also noteworthy is this video of an F-22 pulling an impressively short and vertical takeoff.

I think I prefer the Eurofighter. Thoughts?
