Picked up this one today from a friend. It's one of the best Buccaneer pics I've seen in a long while.

That's the steam from the catapult. It has built up to pressure and the release button has just been pressed to fire the catapult. In a nano-second from that point, the aircraft will be airbourne.
God, I wish I was there now.
