Alright, I think I'm probably rather bad in coming up with proper quizzes myself. I'll try someting.
What exactly do we see here (eleborate)? And how, besides the afterburners, or flaps, do we know that jet is taking off?
As to the first part of your question, I am sure that that is a Royal Air Force Panavia Tornado F3. it's an Air defense Variant (ADV)..
As to the second part of the question, I would say that the slight orange you see in the engine exhaust indicates that it is using its afterburner, which it would do to take off.
Specifically, hehehe, that pic was taken at Kemble Air Day 2008, Kemble Airport, Gloucestershire, England when aircraft ZE887 was taking off. It looks like the Wing Commander Hazell and Squadron Leader Rendell were flying.
Here's a pop quiz: what active duty us navy ship is the last to have sunk another vessel?
hope you don't consider this cheating ... I of course didn't know that date, but that ship was in the newsNo cheating pls
I don't know, just hope you don't mean the ship which was
Decommissioned: 29 September 2015

...well, I'll help out then.You got it partially right,, USS Simpson FFG 56 did sink an Iranian boart in 1988 and until her retirement couple months ago was the most recent active duty US vessel to have sunk another.
This one is tricky (that's why I like it) but I think most folks who knows US Navy and her history should be able to answer this question if they give some thought to it ... w/o cheating LOL.
I'll give you a clue.. There is only one left .. officially. Other than her there are NO active duty USN ship that has sunk another vessel in combat... officially
