Catching the full after-burner effect along with the flex of the wings as the pilot goes to take it verticle, while also slicing through the air and showing some moisture in the always wet Seattle air!

The shutter press's ultimate signal climaxed in this wonderful exertion of force, much as the afterburners lift the jet on takeoff.

Blue Angel with "KBFI Green back"! Very nice contrast. I wish someday I'll have a chance to sit on the back seat of this plane as a photographer.

I've never seen this much flex and was wondering at first if it was an illusion. Great catch.

Absolutely beautiful, the clarity of the airframe itself in duo with the afterburners, I wish I was in that back seat! :(

Rumour is that the A/B models have spinach juice added to the hydraulics to extend the life of the aircraft.
