Watching fighter jets burn through the night is pure awesome

I can pretty much watch these fighter jets rip through the runway at night forever. I mean, what is more awesome than seeing city lights blur and afterburners shoot out fiery power? This footage comes from The Aviationist and includes all kind of fighter jets burning rubber at the Nellis Air Force Base near Las Vegas, Nevada.

I took this video about 6 years ago of an F/A-18 Super Hornet taking off from the local airport on my college campus in New Hampshire. This is the first and only time (that I know of) where a fighter jet has used our little runway.
