Fighter jets and aircraft carriers and fighter jets taking off of aircraft carriers are some of our favorite things in the world for so many reasons. One of them is just how perfect each launch has to be. Just look at how the wheels of the jet reach the end of the aircraft carrier as the fighter jet achieves lift off.

And that's just another day at the office for everyone involved, it's nothing special. It's nice to be reminded at how awesome these jets—and the people flying them—truly are. This picture is actually notable because it shows a French Navy Rafale Marine aircraft taking off from the USS Carl Vinson.
