Zone 5 afterburners are alight on this US Navy F/A-18 Hornet, as it's catapulted off the deck of the USS George Washington. The GW, Stethem, and the USS Carl Vinson are all taking part in Valiant Shield 2014.
This week also marked the 67th birthday for the US Air Force. While the service has been around since the dawn of flight, it wasn't until 1947 that it was fully separated from the US Army. Here, we see a pair of F-16s from the New Jersey Air National Guard performing a flyby at Yankee Stadium in celebration of the USAF's birthday.
