Low Level

A fun little video of an F/A-18E SuperHornet going low level through the Sierras. Stolen from Scott off of Facebook.

    1. That’s the Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System, JHMCS. It’s a HUD on a head, as it were. It provides targeting symbology projected on the eyesheild for off boresight shots for the AIM-9X. The Heads up display has a very narrow field of view, but the AIM-9X can be fired at targets virtually abeam of the shooter. So by looking at the target, the pilot can lock on the missile.
