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! #3511242
