F-18 shows "God's light" deploying flares at airshow February 22, 2012Posted by David Cenciotti in : Military Aviation , trackback
The following video shows a Finnish Air Force F-18 and The Midnight Hawks deploying flares into the clouds during the Kauhava Midnight Sun Airshow in Finland.
The light of the “F-18 bonfire” seems to radiate from a single point in the sky creating the same optical effect that rays of sunlight create when streaming through gaps in clouds: the so-called Light of God.
The Midnight Sun Airshow is a traditional airshow held each year at the end of June. It starts at 7 PM and lasts close to midnight .
