That takes practice. Nice shot Alan! They should put # 6 and #9 in for this stunt, so that the numbers match.

I can't wait til the challenge is over to find out how you did this. Is this formation flying? And if so, it's amazingly sharp, so I think probably not. Is it a model airplane? Possibly - makes more sense as to getting this to be so sharp. Is it an illegal PS trick? Time will tell... : )

the plane at the bottom has the number 5 printed upside down, which suggests that the plane on top is number 9 and not 6 as it appears?
Anyway, moving on....

Fantastic shot of an amazing test of pilot skill. This isn't easy to shoot and I'd like to know what your technique and gear was. Not to copy you, just for my own interest sake as I too shot at airshows.

These feats are simply astonishing. How much space is there between those tail fins!!???

About time someone entered some Thunderbirds! For some reason there seem to be more Blue Angels airshows. I guess the Navy believes in quantity over quality. (You can tell which service I was in, eh?)
