Non veni pacem mittere, sed gladium.
When we lived in Chico, aircraft taking off from the airport to the south and turning west would go over our house. The upgraded CDF S2's with the turbine engines and five bladed props flat move.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GiMDKoigPXQ
Nice video. My pilot friend keeps his plane at that airport, and he'a flown me out of there several times.
The waves look calm = normal breeze, which means that he wasn't blown off the flight deck.
The markings indicate VS-30, which was the training squadron for ship-borne antisubmarine aircraft at Quonset Point NAS, Rhode Island. The Navy moved all ASW squadrons to Cecil Field Florida in the early 70s. I was attached to VS-30 at Quonset for training in the S-2E Tracker. Subsequently, this was replaced (again in the early 70s) by the S-3A Viking ASW aircraft. Great memories.
More memories. We could see the Chico airport about 1.5 miles NNW from our house. During airshows, we enjoyed a front row seat, especially when jets were turnin' and burnin', the turns were right over us. Most of the aircraft would arrive on the Friday before the weekend show. Often as not, some would do sort of a pre-show late Friday afternoon. On one occasion, there were four or five P-51's present, and they were all in the air tearing up the sky. At the end, they all took their turn entering the landing pattern. On downwind (headed south), they all came over us in succession, about 500 up, gear and flaps down, Merlins purring. It was just enough after sunset that we could see the blue flame of their exhausts. Good times!
