Thanks for the great comments everyone. Especially you, "heavyj" for honoring me with that highly coveted "IMHO Blue Award"!

Okay, I'm a sucker for powerful jets, ... and for condensation over the control surfaces, ... and for unusual attitudes. I'm also a sucker for a well composed, shot, and presented photo. You're 3 for 3 on that score. Well done!
