Skywatch An F16 Fighter jet flew by and they are so fast we were so surprised we caught it

I know it is not a great catch through the windshield while driving on the freeway -- i just picked up my camera beside me and snapped-- but I was tickled!!! We see them every time it is overcast because they have to put in so many training hours in differing weather My husband is in accounting for the company that creates these planes.

These photos really convey the impression of speed, and create a unique effect by progressing in in detail. Great shots!

Great capture. There are a lot of things that go over my head when I don't have my camera with me. Now that ticks me off.

Hello Texas. :-)
You have some exciting pictures here. I can almost feel the speed and hear the sound.

Thanks for visiting me. The pictures are captured from my balcony. A nice view. Is`t it? So there you have a little bit of Norway

Yes, you reallly did do great! I love to see them fly. I hate to see them. Military and all. But as machines and wonders of engineering they are beautiful.
