    WOW...i have tried to capture the Blue angels in the past and know how hard it can be to do it right. Very nice shots!

    May I ask what lens were you using?

    Meysha, #4 is called a mirror image pass and at the right angle it looks great. I have been photographing aircraft since I was nine so it along with any type of action shots come easy to me. The next time you see a group like this look at them with binoculars and you will see how unsteady they are and how much they bounce around during the loops and rolls. I have had the pleasure of photographing the Canadian Harvard aircraft Association during loops and rolls and it was very exciting but challenging. You can see those photos at http://www.airic.ca/html/chaa_a2a.html

    Happy Landings,

    These are really awesome!
    I have a LOT of Blue Angels photos... Since I live near San Antonio I get to see them a lot. Also, I know one of the Blue Angel Pilots that lives here in San Antonio.
    Great job!:thumbup:

    Another set of awesome photos Airic. Way too tough to pick a favorite, but number 4 really stands out. All are equally amazing. Great work my friend.!!!!!!!

    Sounds like my dream. I would have loved to have lived on a base, especially Nellis.
