Default Anyone else shoot this flight demo?

Please don't laugh, I know this photo is pathetic. This was taken Oct. 25, 2008 at the NAS Jacksonville, FL airshow. Saturday, the rainy day. I was just wondering if anyone with some substantial hardware caught this moment in the F-15 flight demo. I'd love to see some better pix of this shot. You gotta admit, the vapor cloud is awesome.

That will look good in a small print. Or blow it up & add some real film grain:

The day after I picked up my Rebel with just a 55mm kit lens there was a small air show in Brantford, Ontario, Canada. One of the headline acts was the F-15E Strike Eagle team of Ritz and Wild, and there was vapour in the air. Not a bad shot for my first day shooting with a DSLR, if I do say so myself...

Here is one that I captured ,not from the same show this was at Scott AFB but a decent cotton ball behind (Nuke) Sam Joplin the demo pilot and the same aircraft as the NAS Jacksonville demo.



This is from NAS Jacksonville on Saturday at the beginning of his demo.

Thanks, everybody for the responses. I am really enjoying hanging around here. Before I put any money in an expensive camera and equipment, I plan to squeeze all the learning I can out of my little S-series. I can see I have a long way to go, but I'm having fun. Here's the Eagle going the other way. High-G turns + 100% humidity = instant clouds.
