Gorgeous sunset and the f-14 is a magnificent plane gorgeous. considering a picture like this of an f-14 on a carrier deck will be virtually impossible due to its retirement.

Great Shot! This photo could bag the "Top Gun" award - had there been one for warplane photography! The light highlights some interesting details of the wings!

I keep looking at this pic and imagining Tom Cruise saying "I have the need for speed" while "Highway to the danger zone" plays in the background.

This is an amazing pic. You can almost feel the sea wind and imagine the setting sun. The beauty of the pic lies in the fact that the photographer has taken care to capture the symmetry of the airplane. Although this isn't a F-15, this looks like an imposing eagle.
