"I Have The Need .. The Need For Speed", so Tom Cruise said in Top Gun, but he was only playing.

This guy was flying for real at amazing speeds. With no time to look around you can see hes looking straight ahead.

This is actually a crop from a slightly larger image, but I thought it made a better shot.

This was taken from the ground with a long lens and because the pilot was banked it made it look like I was alongside the plane.

Apart from Crop, as taken
