If not for the control tower this would have been an awesome capture of the U.S. Navy Blue Angels.
Taken during an air show at the William J. Fox Airfield in Lancaster, California.

This image is almost incredible two airplanes behind the control tower, you was perfect in timing, excellent done.
Sharpness and clarity make these picture attractive.
Excellent composition and nice presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Easter weekend,

Oh, yes, it could be better without the tower. Your photo brings me back to the Riverside Air Show. Fine title for this shot!
Yes, I love SoCal! But I also like the North California, we were in the Yosemite NP, San Francisco etc.

I have a critical attitude to airshows. Have been at Ramstein Air Show (which was nice, but hot) three years before the terrible accident demanding 70 casualties and more than 1000 injured. Since then, military airshows are forbidden in Germany.
Despite that history: a happy Easter!

Despite the truly horrible point of view, this has turned out to be a strangely attractive shot. Somehow the connection between the two planes and the tower works in fascinating way.
have a great day and happy easter

Ha ha..one of those days Eleu.
You wished you were on the other side of the control tower.
Good shot still

Looks like the toys got stuck up the tower as a result of your keen eye and fractions of a second fast shutter speed. You have successfully frozen the fast action to the best of your ability and I can fully share your sentiment as described in your notes, It's indeed diff and your fine effort is applauded, Congrats.
