Thanks again for posting the link. I enjoyed looking through them. Theres some great shots in there. I googled some of the rego numbers and found that a lot of the aircraft no longer exist.

Collins Foundation in the US have one that can be hired for airshows, and for a measly $12500 you can go up in it yourself.

Is it a special application?

The last leg yesterday, over the LA basin:



And a cool panorama from yesterday too. The stitching between pictures 4 and 5 isn't the greatest. Can you guess where it is?

Another day out at NAF El Centro today.

Three wide. Super Hornets.



Later in the day with awesome light. Loaded for bear, or terrorists, or whatever they feel like blowing up.
