Cool Shots of Blue Angels

Cool pictures of the SanFran Air Show. Check out some of the the later Angels shots, really cool to actually see the supersonic air distortion.

Whoa that plane was low! Those shockwaves are bad ass. And you can see the Firefox like water trail behind it

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

I just so happen to have my D50 for sale if you are interested. Same camera that took the shots above.

i think some of those shots are less than 20ft

shockwaves are bad ass, never seen photographs of them like that, just the one where it sucks the moisture up off the surface.

Those shots are better than A LOT of the professional shots I've seen. Awesome low level shots at speed.

A canon would have gotten better shots

Cool thread. And speaking of that, Israeli pilots are probably the best pilots after ours. The regularly train at night with a ceiling of 300 ft.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

So wild how they let boats directly under the flight pattern out there - Not the same here one bit

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming WOW, what a RIDE !!"
