FA-126 (cn 6H-126) 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.

Like a real life videogame. Awseome pic!

A visitor from Canada posted Fri November 17, 2006:
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.

A visitor from Colombia posted Thu November 16, 2006:
Great photo...one of most beautiful i ever seen. Congratulations Voortmans!!!

A visitor from Spain posted Wed November 15, 2006:

A visitor from United States posted Tue November 14, 2006:
Beautiful shot especially catching the tail light.

A visitor from Canada posted Tue November 14, 2006:
Great composition... sunshine, clouds, reflections off of the aircraft. Clearly shows the intricate control required for in-flight refueling. Very cool!

A visitor from United States posted Tue November 14, 2006:
That is an excellent shot, catching the strobe and the lighting on the jets is perfect.

A visitor from United States posted Tue November 14, 2006:

Wow. Looks like a professionally shot still from a movie.

A visitor from Germany posted Fri November 10, 2006:
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

A visitor from Bulgaria posted Thu November 9, 2006:
WOW!!! Perfect.

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 9, 2006:
Just stunning! I'd say your best work yet, and that's saying something! That photo looks like it was taken straight out of a dream... Keep it up!
