Hi all,
I just wanted to put this in the forums, because I have witnessed and seen many pictures of the famous F-111 "Dump and Burn", but this one takes the cake!

Military aviation doesn't normally catch my eye but that is absolutely awesome, great shot! The clarity of the flame is unbelievable considering it's a backlit shot.

a true friend is someone who sees the pain in your eyes, while everyone else believes the smile on your face.

With the exception of the (what I would imagine un-avioadable) lens glare spot, this is a perfect picture!!! GREAT SHOT BEN!!!

Truly outstanding shot Ben!!

Works so much better when backlit like that..
The flame is so bright it normally just ends up as blown highlights as this poor quality scan of an old slide shows




If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!

Incredible. Absolutely flawless shot. Good mix of creativity and skill - this is what airliners.net is all about.


I'd rather shoot BAD_MOTIVE
