The General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon is a multirole jet fighter aircraft originally developed by General Dynamics for the United States Air Force (USAF). Designed as an air superiority day fighter, it evolved into a successful all-weather multirole aircraft. Over 4,500 aircraft have been built since production was approved in 1976. Although no longer being purchased by the U.S. Air Force, improved versions are still being built for export customers. In 1993, General Dynamics sold its aircraft manufacturing business to the Lockheed Corporation, which in turn became part of Lockheed Martin after a 1995 merger with Martin Marietta. (From Wikipedia) Taken from the ground at Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada.

Another lovely dynamic shot of your favourite theme, though I guess this one was higher than normal, as your picture is not quite as sharp and neat as usual ?
Have you had to crop it, or is it really my eyes are worse than I think !

The glow of the exhaust adds immense power to the photo, and to the aircraft. The symmetric white gas must be given off by the plane, whatever it is. Thanks for the informative note.
Have a good weekend,

Original low POV. I have often read about this fighter.
Good contrast between the blue clear sky. Good presentation of the legendary machine.
Have a good WE!

wow!! what a catch. We can see the fire from the back of this aircraft. Perfectly and originally captured this plane. Excellent work.
All the best and have a nice sunday,

I can imagine the roar of the engine with the after-burner activated, Eleu.
Perfect POV, thus i detect much "noise" on picture's space, can easilly be fixed.
Have a nice sunday,

When I see an F-16 display I find it hard to believe that it is a 36 year old aircraft design, simply fantastic! That guy must be pulling quite a few G's there. This is dynamic at dramatic angle shot with the smoke and the 'stuff' coming out of the afterburner engine- a real feeling of movement, power and lots of impact. Great image, lovely colours and definition in the clouds. Tremendous shot and well done, Congrats :)
