Mexican aircraft spots US Navy nuclear submarine firing Trident missile
A US Navy submarine-launched Trident missile dazzled the crew of a commercial airline crew, who were thoughtful enough to film it so that the rest of us could enjoy it.
The Spanish-speaking aircrew, which was flying from Guadalajara to Tijuana, Mexico, were awestruck by the beauty of the missile’s plume, which glowed a white-hot glow as it headed into the night sky.
“Wow, it’s so impressive,” one crewman said.
For those who aren’t so good with geography, the missile was launched from a submarine in the Pacific Ocean and headed westward across the sky. During the flight, the missile had two-stage separations before sending the third stage hurtling onward on a rather flat trajectory.
According to The Drive, it is unknown which submarine fired the Trident.
The missile, which was reported from Punta Penasco to north Hermosillo, was largely visible to people living in northwestern Mexico.
One airline crewman remarked that he hadn’t seen anything like it in 37 years of flying.
“How beautiful,” he said.
