The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds practiced yesterday (Friday) at Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas, their home base, before being grounded and may not perform in any future air show because the politicians in Washington D.C. are unable to resolve the Sequestration that they imposed on themselves. Not very smart…those politicians.

Historic flight you may have caught here. The image lacks a bit of sharpness but who's to complain, politicians having no sharpness at all. I have seen his team a few years back in Quebec.

Excellent capture, great result with these planes, interesting speed effect and good diagonal through the photo.

Amazing capture. I'd love to know how many shots you had to take to get this one. I really love the yellow contrails and the diagonal format.

So the americans groundet their air show squadron to? Over here in Switzerland our defense minister wants to ground the Patruille Suisse as well because of the maintenance costs, just weird as they are considered as one of the best.
Perfect formation in your picture, captured in a good moment.
have a good sunday

This is something! what a flight formation. Your timing is fantastic and superbly captured at a perfect location in the frame full of power and dynamic with a dramatic view of the yellow trailing smokes. A well detailed shot and great contrast. Well done.
