Fast Jet Friday!
We have an airshow at Langley AFB this weekend and I'm sitting here contemplating the weather which isn't going to be entirely cooperative. Then, I found this shot from a rain soaked 2011 NAS Oceana Airshow. The low light really brings out the afterburner flame and the high humidity creates nice vapor off the wingtips. As long as the weather is acceptable enough to fly in, I'll be there!
