Thunderbird 5 goes full AB out of the High Alpha pass. Those block 52's sure burn hot!

Excellent take off shot. You really get a sense as to what the pilot is feeling prior to leveling off at 97,000ft.

I'm not sure he'd be leveling off at Fl97 for a airshow but still a amazing shot of that P&W giving her hell :)

"Off we go in to the wold blue yonder, climbing high in to the sun...." Fantastic Thunderbird shot!

The aircrew should be looking in front of him, not worried about the Hooter Girls at the beer tent.

Reminds me of an event that took place a couple of weeks ago when I was at the In & Out at LAX and this F-15 did a high speed pass down runway 24R and made a high G right break and then did 5 touch & goes prior to landing, each time pulling into the vertical in full afterburner, climbing very steep. It was surreal! I vowed never to tell this story since nobody would believe me anyhow, but I saw this pitcher and realized I just had to let my story be known to everyone!

This picture has the "Kevin Scott watermark". This guy really masters light, composition and opportunity. I really enjoy his work. Thanks!

I have one word for this photo, AWESOME! That has to be one of the most perfect pictures I've seen on airliners.net, which is certainly saying something. Mr. Scott, you should show the T-Birds this pic, I'm sure they'd love to use it in press materials or at least have it hanging on their wall! 5/5
