Wow, this is so cool. Here’s a MiG-29 fighter jet taking off from a runway and then immediately launching vertically into the sky. The takeoff looks completely normal and innocuous until the jet is a few feet off the ground and then it just zips up like it’s riding the world’s fastest invisible elevator.
