As I told you on Thursday, I love the crop/framing of your "Bank Shot" image. The photograph looks even better on my monitor. It really shows off the complex curves and angles that comprise the exterior of this bulbous aircraft. You've made it look almost handsome. When looking at your wonderful imagery of the 35, I recall the commentary by an elderly couple viewing a painting of Kramer on Seinfeld:

"He is a loathesome, offensive brute. Yet I can't look away. He transcends time and space. He sickens me."  Grin  Wink

Excellent work as always Scott.

Thank you Anna and Jeff! The F-35 is an odd bird. It takes on such a different character at varying  angles and even different lighting conditions with its special coatings. I can't say it's my favorite aircraft aesthetically but it does hold your attention. It ranges from homely to impressive depending on the angle etc. The F-22 is a bit like that too. Not too great straight from the side.

Considering I didn't know I'd be shooting them on this trip I'm certainly happy with what I got. If not for the F-35s I would not have gotten anything from the air. All in all a worthwhile expenditure of time and funds. Lots of both.

Thank you Jeff! The varying cloud cover made for some interesting and rapidly changing lighting.

Close-up

Love the framing on this tight shot Scott. Besides the excellent IQ, it gives me the impression that the F-35 cockpit is the most commodious of any fighter jet to date - maybe I'm wrong.

Thanks to you both, Kaspar and Jeff. The cockpit does seem rather voluminous. Been waiting a long time to use that word!

Thank you Harvey, more than anything I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity. The pilot flying a/c15 is someone I worked with a couple of years ago trying to set up a flight. I didn't realize he was one of the pilots until he wrote an email to me later that day asking if it was me hanging out the back of the 130. Small world. He said it was nice to finally meet face to face, sort of.
