Ferris Air: Where Courage Takes Flight...

Hal Jordan and Carol Ferris are patrolling the coast when their instruments pick up something underwater. Suddenly:

The physics of this scenario are so blatantly in the wrong that it's almost an achievement that they managed it. I mean, where to start?

Apparently the cockpits of these fighters is made of some magic material that can handle wind resistance at Mach 4 and depressurization at 20,000 feet, but can allow someone to hear someone talking through it over the roar of the wind at those same conditions. King Shark apparently is so good that he can ambush a vehicle that is travelling at supersonic speeds (for those in the audience, a normal F-22 can regularly achieve Mach 1.2-1.5 without using afterburners....that's 768+ mph) without being torn to shreds on impact and without being flayed alive while hanging on. And how anyone or anything survived that impact without a scratch and managed to gracefully descend (not to mention they're so close in the last panel their parachutes should be entangled and them plummeting to their deaths) is beyond me.

I mean, this scene doesn't even try to deal with suspension-of-disbelief. It's Silver Age Level silly, while trying to pretend it's not.

Also, apparently Hal Jordan is a dick with or without a power ring.

Judging by the shape of the speech balloons I was assuming that it was something akin to projected telepathy rather than speech.
