I can state without hesitation that as a pilot, I'm as happy or happier than he is.

The biggest difference is that he'll get there faster! :lol:

Here are a few I dug out of the files. The first is my buddy in his Pitts, the second is of me flying a Citabria and the last one is not my photo but wanted to share it anyway because it is of a good friend who flies hornets.

Great shots... I particularly liked RFDGuy's Strike Eagle!

Here's a couple from me - first a photo of a Eurofighter Typhoon from Southport airshow this year:

A real pain to shoot with the 5D2's autofocus but an incredible experience to watch! So fast and so loud... check Youtube if you haven't seen these things fly before! I would love to get a flight in one of theses planes... sadly I don't think that will ever happen! The pilot looks happy :)

The above shot is actually a crop from the picture below: my longest lens is 400mm and I think they like to keep the planes at a safe distance from the crowd :)

Second is a privately-owned Hawker Hunter, Miss Demeanour, flown by its owner Jonathon "Flapjack" Whaley. This is him at Duxford this year waving as he flies past with the canopy back.

Nice shots, but that Hawker paint job gives me a headache every time I see it...
