Nice capture! Are the flames photoshopped in?
NateEllingson September 24, 2017
Thanks! No photoshopping done. The flames do look fake though. I wish I could have got the ground with flames but I didn't know the flames were coming when I was shooting.

I just showed this to my husband and his first reaction was “Wow! That’s a FA-18 Hornet. The flames look real and beautiful!” He’s been in live combat in Afghanistan so I trust his wealthiest knowledge based on experience. Just a fantastic shot!

I was impressed with the jet so much that I didn’t notice the flames until I read the comments. It’s the second jet I’ve seen today that was captured breaking the sound barrier.

Thank you. It's fun capturing the vapor clouds from these jets.
