Last Angel by MattGranz

Currently unavailable for purchase

Taken at the fleet week festivities of 2009.

The last day of the Blue Angel air shows was severely overcast but that made for some interesting visuals such as here, where the condensation coming off the fuselage blends in with the clouded over sky in this particular shot of the F-18 banking hard.
