Other than pilot, the boom operator's job has to be the best one in the world. Once again a great captivating shot Rob.

My favorite part of the photo is the lack of a missile on the left rail...I wonder what happened to it...

Awesome exposure! And beautiful sharpness. There is so much detail that after the initial "WOW", you keep finding new things such as the detail in the basket or the laser guidance pod and bomb. Beautiful shot Rob! ~Sag

I'd have to say the most impressive aspect of this photo is the reflection of the horizon on the canopy. You can clearly see the tan of the desert below and the sky as it darkens.

Awesome picture! Actually the "left rail" isn't a rail at all. It's actually a pylon/BRU combination without anything hung. I suppose they could have sung a Sparrow on it, but it doesn't look like this is the case here.

On the right rail,it's a Laser Guided GBU-12 500lb bomb.
Usually to get a better freedom of visibility for the ATFLIR pod on the left chick,left wing of the aircraft has less ordnance and the bombs on the left wing are usually put on station number S2 and S3.
