It is a shame the f-14s are gone. I liked watching them... one buttload of power. I have yet to see a raptor fly.

I did get to see the stealth fighters years ago before the public was officially exposed to them. I lived in Myrtle Beach and once in a while when surfing, you would seem the off the coast. I miss the nonstop A-10 flights. My brother got a ride on one several years ago.... and I have several friends that are or were stationed on carriers during combat in both gulf wars.

It bothers me that I am unable to capture better photos of the planes, they truly thrill me. I know part of it has to do with the length of the lens, but I also know that my technique is sadly lacking as well.
