Ups:Nailed the exposure and the exhaust makes for a nice watercolor effect on the background. Fills the frame very nicely.

Downs: Horizon is off kilter a touch and it looks so sharp it's beginning to border on crispy. YMMV...

FWIW...According to their website the 4 and 6 jets along with the command crew of Fat Albert Airlines are USMC but jets 1, 2, 3 and 5 are USN...

Really, it used to be #2. cbjetboy, do you have 4 or 6 in similar shot.

Well, they don't carry a spare pilot so I have to assume that the website reflects how they started the year and how they're still slotted (minus #6? that was grounded for the balance of the show season...)

In the Officers Bios, only 4, 6 and the three officers on Fat Albert are wearing the Eagle, Globe and Anchor pin on their cover and have USMC embroidered on the blue suit.

I just checked it out. So #4 is slot and #6 is opposing flight, if #6 was not flying then #4 is the lone marine.

Got a shot of #6. I think the next time they come around here, I'm going to rent a 400mm.

Interesting history going back to 1940's.

Lets see F18, A4, F4, and I don't know the rest.

I had someone PM me wanting #2 and he said he was a Marine. He said #2 was the Marine and so I sent him the image for his wallpaper. The background looks wierd because they were all sitting with engines running. The heat shimmer does not reduce well as you can see. Thanks for the comments everyone!

It was #4 that was grounded for the remainder of the season, hence why we had no Diamond but we still had the solo pilots.

Great shot by the way, not one of my BA shots came out nearly that crisp.

Nice shot. A bit oversharpened for me but still looks good.

I thought that was exhaust as well, except for the fact that it covered the entire background. I thought you may have added it as an effect using a filter from PS on the background. Since you didn't you might be able to get some control of it by using the "glass" filter, or the "ocean ripple" filter. If the effect is too aggressive one could reduce the effect by adjusting the "opacity" or "fill" percentages on the layer you put it on. I've never done this, but when I saw your BG I thought you had so I started looking at the filters that looked like your BG and that's what I came up with. I think it would work.

BTW it does seem a little oversharpened on my 21" CRT as well, but you've got good photos there anyway.

Thanks... Couldn't lay my hands on the link to the announcement.

So, #6 would appear to be the only USMC demo pilot then.

Someone flies a "missing man" formation don't they? Maybe it's time to take that up until all your pilots are airworthy again... :-)
