A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat November 4, 2006:
Superb capture of a strike eagle travelling at a fair rate of knots and pulling quite a few g"s hence the pressure vapour.

The angel and the timing

A visitor from France posted Thu November 2, 2006:
A lot of action in this shot ; the proximity of the ground, a fast turn generating nice turbulences with the mist covering the wings and on top of that the visible weapons pointing out under the wings; it gives to me an impression of being an invisible but invicible ghost.

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 2, 2006:
I hate to be on its bad side!!!

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 2, 2006:
Wow! Very fast photography!

A visitor from Germany posted Mon October 30, 2006:
Fantastic...never saw a pic from a F15 like this!!!

A visitor from United States posted Mon October 30, 2006:
The condensation on the plane gives the appearance that the airplane is changing into a bird, or has just changed from a bird. Amazing.

A visitor from Hong Kong posted Mon October 30, 2006:
Looks like a batman!

A visitor from United States posted Mon October 30, 2006:
The plane looks awsome.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon October 30, 2006:
The terrific sense of speed. The vapour flowing over the wings - it's almost science fiction (Star Trek like - the de-cloaking of an awesome craft) it could be coming out of a time warp (that's enough sci-fi, Ed)!

A visitor from Ukraine posted Mon October 30, 2006:
The greatest F-15 shoot!

A Beautiful capture of the Eagle in it's element.The condensation and blurred background gives this picture an apt title of - A symphony of speed in motion.

Despite all the 'noise' made by the MiG and Sukhoi crowd, the F-15E is the Real Deal of combat jets with its Nonpareil, Sterling battle proven air combat record.

Thanks, Tom, for sharing a Great capture here.
