The USAF F-16 Fighter, performing a very exciting Validation Display last Friday, viewed from the hill overlooking the airport. It only had smoke coming out from the right-hand wing-tip. The white line around the cockpit is the reflection of light and not a halo.
Settings: F/8 1/4000sec -1.67EV ISO320 AV@700mm tripod

Thank you all for your C&Cs on my last upload - really appreciated as always Smile I know aircraft aren't to everybody's taste, but it is so exciting trying to capture them, especially the fast moving ones!!

Well caught, they aren't that easy to capture when they are moving at such speed.

A fine example of really up to date aircraft manoeuvering - very well captured ?1/4000 shutter speed?

Hi Pat
Just checked the meta data and it is indeed 1/4000sec shutter speed image taken at F/8 AV
