I think this is one of my favorite Marine Pilots' pictures of the year.
Very powerful. What a dynamic photo!
The moment was instantly caught by the photographer.

But is this a safe maneuver? Who is this Marine Pilot? Where was the picture taken? Who took the picture? What is the story behind?
Who knows more about it?
Let us know!

In my opinion, this maneuver is part of the job of a Marine Pilot. Every pilot has experienced such a moment.
