Within seconds, a thunderous roar reverberated from the steep, narrow canyon as an F-18 fighter jet streaked through it, passing beneath their feet.This deafening show that was over in a flash is a fairly common sight at Death Valley National Park, 415 kilometers east of Los Angeles, where U.S. and foreign militaries train pilots and test jets in the gorge nicknamed Star Wars Canyon.Wines understands the rush people get from seeing the jets up close.Jets zip through the gorge at 322 to 483 kph and can fly as low as 60 meters from the canyon floor.Training at the canyon doesn't happen every day, so the photographers who make the trek to see them sometimes sit in folding chairs, waiting in the heat, and spy no jets at all.
