Default Are We Sick Of The Australian Defense Force Air Show Shots Yet?

Just in case your not sick of them yet, here are a couple I would like some criticism on...

A BAe Hawk...



An F-111 Landing at RAAF Amberley



The Famous F-111 "Dump and Burn". They say that this was discovered by accident 40 years ago when a pilot was performing a missed approached while dumping his fuel - the tower reported "Ahh - you have flames coming out the back"



Thanks For Looking

As do I, as do I (sigh)

Sadly, they are being retired in 2010. This was a bit of history actually, as this airshow was the last time they will perform at their home base at Amberley.

You bet Andrew - I actually found it was a bit too long for the formation stuff, but the photos posted are not cropped - it was how they were shot. The raw files are something to behold

In answer to your original question: Hell No...

I could look at work like this all day! Excellent series.
