Airfest 2009-Six At A Go


I've been meaning to post this shot for you since the night of Airfest, but I've been lazy. I think this is the best picture I've ever taken of the Thunderbirds, and I've shot them three times now I think. The light is pretty good (although not perfect) but the composition is awesome. All six planes in formation, with the the top one just beginning to break out and roll off towards me, letting the sun light it up so that it stands out from the others. The number six plane at the bottom is also starting to roll out of formation away from me, showing you the full paint scheme of the underside. This one may turn out to be a calendar shot, watch and see!
