No, it's not Tom Cruise's "Maverick" showing off in his F-14, nor the Blue Angels' solo, but a skipjack herring inverted, jumping about five feet high, as a number of them were putting on a real aerial display. That light colored fin you see facing downward is actually its top dorsal fin as it is upside down. We might call this "fish-in-flight" a FIF since we call birds-in-flight a BIF.
