This hornet made a very hard turn just in front of the audience. Look at the colors of the condense that has formed over his wings.

What a fantastic shot, to capture the speed and movement of the Hornet in a split second. Conveying the speed is difficult in a photograph but the condensation achieves this. If I only took one shot of this quality in my life I would consider this an achievement well done.

Absolutely awesome capture. The only thing I would like to see are the wingtips. ;)

Perfect dynamic & close framing, artistic yet still keeping documentary value - subtle lighting, good control of contrejour - speed impression with low shutter speed yet perfectly sharp

Very nice shot about a high-speed aircraft. The fog behind tells that this bird is really pushing it to the limit.

This is an excellent picture! It has a very high quality definition and the plane was captured just right in the moment when it was at MACH 1.0, crossing through the sound barrier. Also, the fighter was snapped from a very good angle.
