That would be pretty cool to photograph. I think it might have been kind of neat to try out a different set of angles while shooting this one. Nice capture though.

Awesome bird, but before you fly it be sure and remove the plastic flags! :)

Never hurts to have a few pictures to promote the military.

Thanks Doug, Larry and Wayne!

Doug - I took quite a few different angles but only have this one ready for publication so far. I'll try to get some more out there next week.

Larry - I love the plastic flags as well. You'd think the folks responsible for this equipment would have been trained to remove them at launch time and wouldn't need the blatant reminder.
