Wow Joe.  It looks like your were standing on the runway.  Great shot.  Was this inside the fence?  You must have some serious good connections.  It is a beautiful airplane and you got all of it with clarity.

Wow!  This  one looks like it's fresh off the production line...no squadron markings.  Great shot.

Nice shot, Dave!  It looks like this one ended up with Strike Fighter Squadron 122 (VFA-122) "Flying Eagles" NAS Lemoore.

A Super bookin it out of Kirtland AFB/Albuquerque.

There are some decent shooting places at this Base/City Airport.  This was from a designated viewing area near the South end of the runway.  There is also another one closer to the other end.

@flynavy (U.S. Naval Air Forces) on Twitter said, "Nice shot!"  I told him that I would relay his message to the photographer.

VFA-115 Eagles planting at El Centro. The wrench stenciled on the nose is a maintenance award (usually within the CAG).

That was one of the best aspects of the whole trip.  Miss it this time?  Don't worry as another bird will be along in 3 .. 2 .. 1 .. NOW!   Grin
