Notice how the otherwise sharp background is blurred by the fighters' hot exhausts.

Sleek looking aircraft in tight formation , the slight difference in wing positions showing the delicate balance to achieve this manouver

Fantastic shot with the mountain range as the background and the people so close in the foreground-wish I could take such a shot!!

The hills are alive with the sound of.....the Swiss Air Force!!

What a great photo!
To the people who think this isn't real and ask why some people aren't watching it:
Mr. de Groot used a extreme Zoom lens for this photo. (I don't know any mm. numbers)But he was on a hill/mountain further away (I think) Used all his zoom and took the picture. That's why it seems that the mountain and the formation is VERY close to eachother. But actually it's pretty far apart.
That's why the Jets aren't very well seen by the spectators on the hill.

Actually it is Swiss Air force... but stunning photo, the background is amazing...

Actually, I don't understand, why don't people watch the formation? On the picture only 1 person watches this rare thing ... :D

Brilliant Image. The aircraft seem to just "hang" there as if posing for their picture. Magnificent capture of the moment!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri June 22, 2007:
