Air shows always manage to draw a big crowd. People of all ages gather at a certain location to watch all of these talented pilots fly by, accompanied by the ridiculously loud trail of sound that follows. While there, an observer can expect to see some sort of unique flying style, whether it is breaking the sound barrier, or performing amazing stunts. What they don't see is these magnificent machines taking off to do their job.

Intense footage of afterburner takeoffs from Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada, USA during the 2014 Nellis Open House. Included are F-16 Vipers, F-15 Eagles and A-10 Warthogs.

      From the same article: "The F-16's official name is "Fighting Falcon", but "Viper" is commonly used by its pilots and crews, due to a perceived resemblance to a viper snake as well as the Colonial Viper starfighter on Battlestar Galactica."
