Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor on take off, almost straight up!...
The Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor is a single-seat, twin-engine, stealth fifth-generation fighter aircraft developed for the United States Air Force (USAF). It was designed primarily as an air superiority fighter, but has additional capabilities including ground attack, electronic warfare, and signals intelligence roles. Lockheed Martin Aeronautics is the prime contractor and is responsible for the majority of the airframe, weapon systems and final assembly of the F-22. Program partner Boeing Defense, Space & Security provides the wings, aft fuselage, avionics integration, and training systems. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lockheed_Martin_F-22_Raptor#Origins
Planes of Fame Air Show, May 3-4, 2014
Recently, my son and I went to the Planes of Fame Air show in Chino, CA. It was a beautiful day and I took quite a few pics. I'd never shot an air show before, it was definitely a learning experience! Focusing on a moving plane is a real challenge! I'll be sharing some of the 'better' shots in the days ahead.
Thank you for your views and comments, much appreciated!
