The was a Pearl Harbor re-enactment done at the Rocky Mountain Air show. They do all sorts of cool stuff with pyrotechnics, but I couldn't get any good shots with the planes near the flame. I did like this one, though.

The wing, at the top, was out of frame. I was lucky to get the other plane at all. There were about 10 planes buzzing around with explosions and fireballs going off, and a bunch of reenactors running around shooting machine guns. It was very chaotic.

I wish you did not frame it (let them fly away unrestrained), but as it is, could make a great postcard.

I like this a lot. Unexpected angle. I like the inclusion of the two planes. Just wish the wing of the upper one were not chopped off, although it does give the sense of it flying out of the shot.
