    Maybe you mean "clapotis" but as the waves are breaking they don't exactly follow the definition...
    However the below picture from Tiny's link does look like the pictures were taken from the shore line, so you could be right in clapotis effects being involved on the shown pictures . . :idea:

    P.S. - I've just looked up some info about these phenomena here . . .

    I would call them Boeing B-52 Stratofortress's, I would advise them to stop buying engines from Volkswagen . . . ;)

    Three B-52Gs taking off from Barksdale Air Force Base, Louisiana (USA), 1986.

    I am pretty sure that the B52 uses (and has always used) Pratt & Whitney engines. Although, a switch to Rolls Royce power is currently being contemplated.

    That are the officially released specs, it's a military secret that they use Volkswagen engines on all B-52's, I was not supposed to reveal that, I'm sorry it happened . . :eek:

    You know, if you traveled in time to tell the men designing the B52 that it would still be the front line bomber in the 21st century they probably would have laughed you outta the room.

    No way you would convince them they'd not sell the air force something to actually replace it well before then.
