Some kind of an artistic photo, the light, scenery and the luck of catching the taillight of the viper. Turing left and refueling, looks difficult.

Incredible-Perfect-what an athmosphere-thank you for that icon of aviation photography.

The play with the horizontal line, the dynamics of the proportions and shapes of the jets, their strong contrast in the foreground combined with the soft but slightly threatening endless layer of clouds in the back and all that covered with the mystic yellow-magenta colourtouch of this air-ocean....I think I could easily write some pages about this picture in german...so so well done

It's a great shot. Could you tell me why all three fighters only have a missile on the left wing tip?

That is an excellent shot, catching the strobe and the lighting on the jets is perfect.

Great composition... sunshine, clouds, reflections off of the aircraft. Clearly shows the intricate control required for in-flight refueling. Very cool!

1. There is good detail seen on the nearest aircraft. 2. The aircraft in this flight are all banked in relation to the clouds & horizon. Not your usual "wings level" shot.
3. The clouds & background are slightly hazy and fuzzy while the aircraft are clear & crisp.
