This is the best Super Moon shot we have seen so far!
Taken on Nov. 14 by Suzanne Farmer, the picture above shows an F-15E Strike Eagle from RAF Lakenheath, UK, with the Supermoon in the background.
The Supermoon on that night was the closest a Full Moon has been to Earth since January 26, 1948: 14% bigger and 30% brighter than usual.
No need to add further comment to Suzanne’s shot: perfect timing, perfect photograph that combines the Supermoon and a combat jet flying nearby.

Link to HD version? (This would make a really cool wallpaper.)
A real plane capable of real combat (a Mig or Sukhoi would have ruined it by streaming black smoke behind the aircraft).
The only plane that would have looked good there is a Fw 190 D.
Another big time FAIL on your part. You’re trying to imply that the FW-190D was the best piston-engine fighter in WW-II. Wrong! First off if you knew anything about WW-II fighters, as I do (I know everything) and you were gonna pick that Focke-Wulf model you would have picked the Dora-9 (as it was known). The FW-190D9. But even then you’d be wrong.
If you knew half as much as you spew you would have picked the TA-152H1, a derivative of the FW-190D9. It was the best piston fighter of WW-II. Even outpaced the P-51. But unfortunately you’re outta your league. Way outta your league given some of the guys posting on this forum (some). If you want to try and sound smart about aviation – to impress the unsophisticated, which you are – go to an RF model airplane site. There I promise you will be their Superman! Or should I say Uberman?
