Thunderbird Mirror Pass

This shot was taken last year at our air show we held here at Beale AFB. These guys are moving when they come by and on this day it was family only day, so we got a real show from these guys, lots of fun for sure.

Always the glutton for punishment, I humbly submit my entry.
This picture was taken at the Watsonville Air Show in 1976 when I was attending the language school in Monterey.

If you get excited over 2 F16s rubbing bellies, then you are in for an exciting night 2 P51D Mustangs and we may have something!

Yes, and thanks for raising the size limit above 800 pixels. 1024p is a really good viewing size and is large enough to reveal many technical weaknesses that can't be seen at 800p.
