Hi all

Its been a while since I've had the chance to photograph military jets. Here are a couple of the F/A-18 Super Hornet I photographed recently. I used a 70-200VR with a 1.7x teleconverter. Any comments or critique would be highly appreciated.

#1 is an excellent shot of a critical phase of flight.

Thanks for the comments guys. I'll look into straightening the horizon. As for me owning a Nikon, I had my heart set on a Canon not too long ago but a better opportunity came up for Nikon and therefore I have that. They all take good pics anyway so who really cares? I'll try get a few more pics up.

Thanks for the comments and good shots truman!

I meant that both Canon and Nikon generally take good shots if you know what your doing. I certainly didn't mean all Nikons take good shots.

Yea, I notice the Nikon gear too. ;)

Great shots. Especially with a 200mm + 1.7 TC. I am gearing up for my first airshow of '09. Langley AFB, two weeks away on the 25th. :D
