^^^^ Harvey, both your low light shots from Gila Bend are lovely. The soft light and tones of the evening really make these images. The sunset reflecting in the starboard access door is terrific.

Thank you very much Jeff, my friend that works down there called to say these guys were there for a couple of days. He ask about photography and the commander said he didn't want anyone near his aircraft. So I shot these from half mile away on the tower catwalk. The 300 with the 2X does a very nice job. Thanks again.

I'm glad you were able to get out there Harvey. I really like the "bare metal" look of this micro. You balanced this exposure perfectly.

Thank you Jeff, much appreciated. They stretched this one 5" so they have more room for new threat generating equipment for new missions for the AF as well as the Marine missions. They will be at Red Flags in the near future if things go well.

Very cool Harvey.

It's has to take a lot of courage to fly one of these things.

Were they part of the WTI exercises?

Thank you Steve, these guys love flying these jets. The company owner has bailed out of two of this type aircraft. They are apart of WTI and they are working for a contract with the AF to work at Red Flag when they have their new threat making devices installed in this new silver jet.
