Two F22s of the USAF came to the airshow and the one shown here is shown pitching up just after take-off. Note: the wisps of condensation. The photo was taken on the last day of the airshow (3 March 2013) and was taken from the One Tree Hill area. The photo was taken with a Nikon D90 camera fitted with a Sigma EX 50-500mm 1:4-6.3 APO DG HSM zoom lens. The photo was tweaked using Gimp software – select/copy/paste tools to remove some imperfection, brightness/contrast tool and sharpening filter.
