it's real qucik. Listen to the people react on the other side of the ship who can see it coming. Priceless.
FOR ALL THOSE WHO DON'T KNOW: This video was shot on the deck of the USS Teddy Roosevelt during a "day cruise", approc 50-60 miles off the coast of Norfolk VA. YES, over the ocean, NAVY pilots are allowed to execute high speed, super sonic flight. NO, this is not fake in any way! lol I don't know why people keeping thinking it is.

Here's some info regarding the pilots: just prior to this, there's a segment of the tape where the announcer gave some info about the plane/pilot. He says, "...Black Lions, fighter squadron two thirteen (213), flown by Lieutenants Jeff McKenna and Ben Henemyer(?) will make a super-sonic pass from stern to bow. After the pass Lieutenant McKenna will execute a maximum G pull into the vertical while dispensing flares."
