Flipping the Bird

By sut68      
A fun one for today from Saturday's wonderful airshow at Southport. The title has two meanings, one being the more obvious one of the pilot flying his plane upside down, the other is a reference to a rather rude moment in the film 'Top Gun'.

The shot is not perfect and if I was using it for advertising purposes I might' be tempted to make both the planes and trails parallel to each other and slightly less tighter to the frame edges ... but this is how it came out of the camera, so it stays like this. I like it anyway Grin

Cheers fella. Nope, not easy ... but having watched them a few times you get to know their pattern a little more and can pre-plan a little better.

Then again, this wasn't planned and was more by chance Wink
