Angels that is...

Got to spend some time on base at NAS El Centro. Mainly went to shoot some F-18 squadrons and was treated to a couple Blue Angels practice sessions!

Holy Cow! I hope you were wearing ear plugs for the last one. That's a great shot.

#3 Rocks! What a great capture. I've not seen many of the Blues with that angle before.

Love #3, but you led off with a great catch, too. I need to learn to shoot with both eyes open!

Great shots. How do you get so close? I would have thought the only way to do that would be to sign up for a tour or two.
