Taken during Red Flag 09-3.  The Thunderbirds were recovering after their morning practice.  I was shooting from the Speedway and was tracking this aircraft through my viewfinder when he crossed the sun.  I was at around 400-415mm.  Not fun, and it took a while for my vision in that eye to return to normal.  Not something I care to repeat, but the resulting image turned out looking pretty cool:

Not the greatest image quality, and definitely more of a case of luck than skill, but it's still my favorite T-Bird shot that I've taken.

The Thunderbirds take off at Thunder in the desert. The haze is from the strong wind and blowing dust and is why I made this black and white.

Joe and I made a detour on the way back from Tucson this afternoon and stopped by the American Legion Post #109.  This is an authentic Thunderbird alumni, having flown with them back when they used the F-4.  Anyway, bit of a tough shoot, owing to a white iron fence right in front of the plane.

Killer detail shot Dave.  Didn't even think about shots like that.

Nice. I should stop by since it's right up the road from me.
