Excellent capture of the planes against the white clouds and bright blue sky.

For a second, I had this feeling these were remote controlled planes...are they?

Marites said...

RC planes? that's a great shot! it's like you're also up in the air too. My skywatch is here.

Off we go, into the wild blue yonder, climbing high into the sky........

The photo makes me want to break into song and shout it over the roar of the engines.

Just fabulous!

Mojo said...

These weren't RC planes, they're the real deal. T-29 Trojan trainer aircraft formerly used by the US Navy and Air Force. These particular ones were flown by the Trojan Horsemen precision flight team.

Really good shot! I think I see a small hint of a hidden 4th plane behind the one in front...
