F-18 hornet low fly-by

F/­A-18 Hornet flying very low over Saline Valley hot springs (Death Valley National Park).­

US Air force uses this remote and rugged desert and mountain area as a training ground, presumably because they are similar to the terrain in Afganistan and Iraq.­

Almost every day, F/­A-18 Hornet fighter jets fly very low and very fast (close to the speed of sound) over Saline Valley.­
