OT- Air Force C-17 low pass over Interstate 90 in Washington State

That’s Keechelus Lake in Washington state. The road you see is I-90. Near Snoqualmie pass.

Hard to believe that was authorized. Maybe it’s CGI?

Didn’t see any effect on the water. Not sure if there should have been. But plausible, the Air Force has a big base nearby.

The place to see low flying military jets In WA is Highway 20 on Whidbey Island near Coupeville. The Navy has a outlying landing field where jets from nearby NAS Whidbey practice landings. They come in almost parallel to the road and not very far away.

I do not know but some video games are that good.

Getting that sized plane to bank that way is more make-believe than real.

It is not CGI if it is a game. Just a game engine.

“Star Wars Canyon” is a popular viewing location in California for US military aircraft. It is located near Death Valley and sometimes the planes fly below the level of observers, who are on a ridge overlooking the canyon.

The following video (5 minutes) shows several different types of aircraft, including a few F-35s.

If this is what they’re showing off, I’d LOVE to see what they’re not showing off!
