    Thanks for posting! That's quite interesting footage.

    It's just too bad it doesn't come with sound. Several websites on aviation matters call the XF-84H the loudest aircraft ever built.

    I use to have a wav file of it (yeah, it's old) and it sounded nasty. Also from what I've read the shockwaves coming off the tips could induce nausea in the ground crew.
