Absolutely the most amazing thing I 've ever seen aviation wise.
I once saw a five ship formation of Eagles takeoff and go vertical from St. Louis Lambert Field. I was on final and was warned about wake turbulence by the tower and then saw them. They were out of sight in less than 30 seconds.
Fun stuff. I was transitioning over McChord AFB one day and a flight of 15s took off. The tower restricted them from going vertical until they were over the departure end threshold cause of the traffic (me). I was about 1,500' AGL crossing the middle of the runway and looked to my left and saw some going straight up no more then 4000' away. I wish TCM was still as active as it used to be.
