Major Nathan Miller (Blue Angel Lead Solo) in his office during the high speed sneak pass down the runway. The compression of the air around the aircraft's leading edges caused a "bow wave" effect that caused the bending of light rays. Here a bit of it is seen extending below the aircraft in the airspace between the right edge of the photo and the letter "s" in "Blue Angels". Taken with a Canon 1 Ds Mk III + 600 mm L IS lens @ 1/2700;ISO 160 and F/5.
