This Aeroplane Looks Like It May Have Flown Back to the Future

Image Cache: We don't know if Doc Brown worked on this F/A-18C Hornet, seen here taking off. We don't know if it had a Flux capacitor on board. We also don't know if it was only travelling at 88 miles per hour when this photo was taken, although it seems unlikely. However, we do know it looks like it's leaving burning tire tracks in its wake, just like Doc Brown's time-travelling DeLorean did in the Back to the Future movies, and we do know this looks awesome. Browse through the cool photos, animations and diagrams in Gizmodo's Image Cache here.

The photo of the Hornet, which was assigned to the Wildcats of Strike Fighter Squadron 131, was taken on the flight deck of the aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower on 27 November 2015. Not seeing it? Let us help:
