Blue Angels

Fast moving planes are quite difficult to photograph. In fact, they lose a bit of effect even watching them with binoculars. It's like watching TV--you lose all context.

Two years ago I took some pictures with the first roll of film in my camera (Nikon Lite-Touch zoom 120, a very nice piece of engineering). And this week, some more.

From 30th and King, 2001:

A most impressive maneuver: An F-18 shadowing a P51 mustang, which it did for a several mile circle. The range of speed of the jet fighters is incredible.
