Another shot from the Mach Loop, this is a F15 flying through in the sunshine.

Thanks all, these Jets fly very close to us on the mountainside, and the earth vibrates as they pass, Great feeling.

Geez, I really need to get out there one of these days. Nice crisp image.

A different look than what I can get out here at Star Wars Canyon.

I'm hoping to capture some better shots this summer now that I have a Nikon 300 f2.8 VR lens along with the 1.4TC.

WOW! Spectacular...

Did you hear something after that shoot, Barry?

Great shot!! The relaxed position of the back seater reminds me of something I always told young guys who might be interested in flying for the USAF - "yup, just another day at the office."

Cant wait until this Covid19 goes, so that we can get back up into the mountains to view these plains again.

Great shots. .there is a place in California called Star Wars Canyon that the jets fly through very close as well... I had 1 day to visit this year but the weather was not great so no jets.. I would like to get down there and visit a few days in hope of something great like you have.
