Aviation

Heavy Metal Jet Team

I am continually going through images trying to bring more and more to the blog. Some might ask why put so much into a free service on the web? Well for one thing it forces me to process more of my images which is good because aviation can really stack up on the processing bill. Next by doing all this processing and sharing it on the blog my skills are improving in post and i get more ideas for future projects. Like this one.

Heavy Metal Jet Team

This is the Heavy Metal Jet Team, a newly formed team that just started performing the North American air show circuit this past March at the Florida International Air Show in Porta Gunda. This is one of the few civilian owned jet teams. It is a five ship team, including 4 L39’s and a T33 Shooting Star, but the T33 was not up performing this time. They fly fast, close and in great formation. They can be seen in the Arctic camouflage scheme. It’s a great group of experienced pilots making one spectacular show! I can’t wait to photograph them again but for now I’ll just have to enjoy the photos which I hope you will as well.

Images captured with Nikon D3, AF-S 200-400 VR, on Lexar UDMA Digital Film
