Thunder over michigan? Is that like Thunder over Louisville?

Big airshow + massive Fireworks display ( we do it as a kickoff for the Kentucky derby week.)

Great shots as always, ahuxman58. I like being able to see the pilots in the planes as they are flying.

Thank you for the wonderful photos.

Mine are not nearly as well composed or executed. My editing skills are also very lacking, as well as the length of my lens.

In any case, these folks deserve the bandwidth, no matter how bad my photographic skills are...

I missed a shot of the F-15 knife edge pass with the canopy facing the crowd. It was similar to the bottom view knife edge with the vapor cloud... but it was stunning. It would have been one of those photos that drops jaws. Too bad I was asleep at the shutter. The vapor cloud was beautiful and enveloped the plane instantly with perfect geometric patterns that complimented the wing surfaces... then was gone.

Yeah , Vapor only lasts but a couple seconds during passes, is an awesome sight when captured.if theirs moisture in the air then you'll get some vapor,the F-22 Raptor the new king of vapor pulls some nice vapor ,with the FA-18 close behind, and who can forget the awesome F-14's pulling vapor when that was seen you never forgot it.

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.

ahuxman58 I love your shots!! We just received here in Arkansas a squad of A-10s. They relieved the squad of Fighting Falcons this year. I believe alot of the vintage planes I saw a few months ago in Chino California are in your pictures. I like the vintage planes, but love the jets!!
