I love air shows, and this picture is great. The Blue Angels are better though!

Fantastic capture, Jim!! As you probably saw from my gallery, I also had the pleasure of photographing the Thunderbirds a couple of months ago at the air show hosted by the Grand Forks Air Force Base.

Hey Jim! Congrats on this great telephoto capture! I love the vertical aspect, which really gives one the feeling of "way up in the wild blue yonder"! Good luck in the next round!

Awesome shot, Jim!!! I had the chance to see the Blue Angels perform a few weeks ago and they went straight up like that. It seemed as though they were going slow and could stall at any second and fall right back down. It's fun and scary to watch! Great capture!!! Congratulations and good luck next round!
