    Quite, quite impressive. Wow. I'm not sure I'd have got even ONE plane into my frame...
    Wonderful sky as a backdrop against the planes, and wow, it looks quite daring when they fly upside down!

    The last one has some sort of menacing look to it, but I admire you for getting the angles right (lighthouse is all straight, itwould definitely have been leaning heavily if this had been my photo :roll: ).

    (Too bad I had not seen this earlier - this is a theme that my son would have been interested in, but he has left for a swim meet early this morning... But then, I mean, he will be back and then I can still show him! :D)

    Very cool. #7 is flying in the four ship formation. This is the spare plane and is a two seater.

    Thanks Corinna and thanks for your comments, I hope your son got a chance to see them.

    Eric, shot #8 was taken on a practice day and that is why #7 was in the four ship formation. There were also two #4 planes flying at the same time.

    Thanks again!

    Why are the landing hooks extended in #6 and 7?

    Good pics.

    I believe it is just apart of the stunt, I know of no other value for why they would be down - Maybe Airic knows more.



    This aircraft is called Fat Albert Airlines An all-Marine Corps crew operate the Lockheed- Martin C-130T Hercules. It carries more than 40 maintenance and support personnel, their gear and spare parts and communication equipment. It starts the blue angels show with a couple of very slow and low fly-bys and it does a couple of stunts. It very cool to see this behemoth performing its stunt routine.

    Thanks for looking and commenting.

    They are operating at slow-flight...VSO (aka- Sh!t out)

    Anyway, anything that causes drag helps...even the hooks. :thumbup:
