I was at sun n fun, 2nd largest fly in held in the us. Show a little smaller than average, but I was glad it was held at all.
Great planes everywhere!
The raptor f-22 was amazing.
This one shot, through the afterburners, caught my eye.
It is different, but it sure shows what atmospheric distortion from heat can do.
I thought this one actually told an interesting story- even if it is blurry

Thanks Mike!
I was testing the brand new sony a1. At nearly 30frames per second I have several hundred of this plane.
The vast majority are boring. With nothing moving, jets often look like a model plane hung from a string. The skies were also iffy- nice blue and fluffy to the north, grey blah overcast to the south of the flightline.
This one was different and I thought told part of a story.
The only problem I had with the a1 is that in silent shooting, it sure fills a card up fast!
Thanks all
