Taken from hillside! Eeeeps. That must have been a tad noisy.

Incredible shot. Glad you put it in competition.

Thanks for all the kind comments. Got pretty excited as this went over 6.8 at one point but really pleased with a TT finish.

Just for info this was taken with a Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 and Nikon 1.7x TC. Stopped down slightly it gives great sharpness and the AF performance is still top notch as well. Not sure how fast this was travelling but it certainly wasn't hanging around. Shame there's no afterburner!

It looks like those wings are about to catch fire! Love the HUD reflection in the cockpit too. Congrats on the TT!
