Fulcrum point

By javam    
Returning to the air show shots for today and another picture of the mig 29 taken at this years RIAT.

The sky is a bit darker than I would like. The sun was shining almost directly at the belly of the plane so it is underexposed to avoid burn outs.

Don't often click on aircraft photo's. But this is an eye catcher.
Well Taken.

Well done Neil for the H/C, well deserved. Aviation photography is not easy by any standards. This shot shows your ability to keep up with the action and keep it sharp. Superb with the added smoke on! Ron.

Thanks for comments Jouko, Dave, Tim, Ron and thanks for the HC Pete. Two in one week is probably something I will not see the like of again for some time!
