Remark Photographer
85-0009 (cn 500-0095) "Three Pop Alpha, traffic 10 o'clock and a mile, C-5 heavy 1000' feet below you." "Yes sir, I've got him in sight and am getting the Canon out now!" Needless to say a lot of luck went into this one, I even got the top strobe going off!

Perfect capture of what for most of us is an unbelievable occurrence.

WOW! What a great photo! Nice job getting the strob going off too! My father worked on the C-5 at Honeywell Minneapolis back in the 1970's before he started work on the Space Shuttle in 1976/77

Never see a C-5 from this angle, fantastic!

A visitor from United States posted Wed August 2, 2006:
Nice shot, but I hope there was a second pilot onboard serving as a safety pilot flying the airplane while you were futzing with the camera...

A visitor from United States posted Tue August 1, 2006:
I think I would be in shock if I ever saw this....might shock me at first, but it would be well worth it. You're lucky you had a camera with you.

A visitor from United States posted Wed May 24, 2006:
The focuss and apperture are very clear, which make the viewer feel comfortable and in detail.

A visitor from United States posted Tue May 16, 2006:
Radar absorbant paint. Doesn't look to appealing but very effective in combat zone. HOOAH!!!

A visitor from Canada posted Tue April 25, 2006:
