Greetings:

 

Here is a shot of a F-22 Raptor on takeoff at the Mather Air Port in Rancho Cordova, CA. With 70,000 pounds of thrust... this plane can stand on the thrust nozzles and then climb out of sight in short order. It is one on a very short list of fighter aircraft that can fly at 1200 MPH without Afterburners on, in a mode called Super-Cruise. 

 

Camera: D3 HH, W/70-200mm f/2.8. PP Adobe CS6

Enjoy,

Don

==========================================================
Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x.  Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.

Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.

Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.

Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy. It all depends on knowing what it can and can't do. "A man's got to know his (camera's) limitations." paraphrasing Dirty Harry...

Hello:

 

Thanks for dropping by and your remarks.

 

Lockheed.... they have since1930 done such an outstanding job of producing leading edge aircraft such as the P-38 Lightning, U-2, SR-71 and the F-22 and many many others. 

 

Regards,

 

Don
