Just wonderful images of aircraft, hard to imagine how they could be bettered, No 2 is my favourite, very atmospheric scene given the colours and the clouds as a backdrop.. perhaps worth cloning out the other photographer.. ? Thanks for posting I always enjoy your aircraft images.

Terrific shots!  I had a customer, retired Air Force, that flew the F100, the F4, and the F15.  Talk about nirvana!!!

Very nice shots of the aircraft. Well done!  I wish my local Navy base was still open. They used to have great air shows. Blue Angels and Thunderbirds would alternate each year.

 

A side note...I find your watermark quite distracting. It draws my eyes from the subject. I know there is a lot of controversy over using watermarks and I don't want to start a discussion here, but maybe you could make it less intrusive (smaller, transparent, in a corner, etc.) Of course, that is just my opinion and please ignore it if you prefer :) .
