"B1-RD to tower, request permission for landing."

On the other hand, he looks like he is coming in for a fishing run, so this may be more like "attack pattern delta"

Great action frozen here. Perfect amount of sharpening on the subject. In a perfect world I'd like more light on the bird's eye but that would be nitpicky.

As he glided past the camera-man, he flashed his most famous pose. The pose that made him a superstar. The pose that earned him his name. The pose that paid for his million dollar Eyrie.

Yes, he flashed Steel Claw, and the gasps of amazement and awe from the crowd told him that he still had the power.
