Close-Range F/A-18 Flyby Causes Freakouts, Coffee-Spitting in Detroit Apartment Building

Believe it or not, this image isn’t Photoshopped in any way.

It was taken during a specially-authorized low-altitude flyby to open a speedboat race on the Detroit river. A super-low urban flyby, a huge telephoto lens and a depth of field illusion making the jet appear closer to the building than it actually was all came together for a perfect shot.

Needless to say, anyone who wasn’t awake in that building prior to this moment certainly was immediately after.
