Had to go to Coupeville today, and the Navy was doing touch-and-goes at the OLF field. These are the EA-18G Growlers - and they are LOUD! Not so great for the folks who live near the field, but it is awesome to watch them. The field is just the length of the aircraft carriers, and they practice touching down, and immediately lift off again. The cloud of smoke shows where the wheels touched, and they are already lifting.
Awe enables us to perceive in the world intimations of the divine, to sense in small things the beginning of infinite significance, to sense the ultimate in the common and simple, to feel in the rush of the passing the stillness of the eternal.
