The composition as well as the angle of capture are excellent. The sharpness of the image only adds to it being perfect on my view.

Great skilled pilot as I also was the witness of this maneuver. Great Shot !! And for all those dumb persons who call themselves aviation enthusiasts, please notice the position of the aerolons, as if it was the other way round it would have got into a dive.

I thought only Migs and F18s can do those. But then A. It's a Canadair fire-fighting aircraft and B. The water coming out only adds to the amazing effect. One of the best aircraft photographs I've seen!

Spectacular, death defying, eye spliting, ball dropping picture. Let's see if Tom Cruise can perform that stunt.

While I think it's mad, bad and very dangerous, I think it must be genuine - gravity works - look as the way the water is coming from the rear of the hopper and running back along the aircraft. If the picture was rotated would water be rising behind the aircraft?

Great pic, but I still can't believe that it is performing a half loop.

What appears to be a non-acrobatic aircraft is clearly performing an unusual, to say the least, maneuver. Add to that - disgorging a big load of water UPWARDS puts the icing on the cake.

You do not see this at most air shows and not many would try it!

A maneuver which I have never seen before with this type of aircraft, and also with the water makes the picture look great. It really shows some of the performances of the aircraft.

I have to say too, when the upside down, the water CAN'T BE rejected because the system is emptied via gravity... It's not performance, but logic

Gravity is just an accelerational force, if you can make a bigger force in the opposite direction, with a dynamic manouver, it will reverse the force being applied. Great pic!
