I took in the Fort Worth air show not too long ago and snapped oh….. a few thousand images! I thought this one turned out rather nicely and I hope you do to!!

Great pic!We went to an airshow in the UK some time in summer and although I was initially kinda dreading it I got totally into it and absolutely fell in love with our Red Arrows, what a bunch of amazing, brave pilots! They flew a heart shape in the sky in memory of one of their lost pilots and the entire show was breathtaking, exhilarating and truly enjoyable. Looking at your pic I would imagine you felt the same about your USAF?

[…] Topsy Turvy – a pair of fast-moving jets perform a maneuver and Derrick Birdsall comes away with a great picture of the action. The top jet is flying upside down directly above the plane flying below it in very close formation, and Derrick’s dramatic scene does a great job of bringing the action to the viewer. […]
