Tom, it was a very cool day overall. Got some decent shots. We only had some sun break at the end of the day at the end of the F-18 demo.
- @John Giambone. I sure hope you ducked. Your photos on FA are always the best. We'd hate to lose you.!

Great photo!

I love low pass photos, especially when not configured for landing. You remembered to duck, right?

Herky Bird! Former crew member, H models though. I would just say it's not an 'EC-130J', the 'E' is for electronic warfare, and as far as I know it's just what we used to call a "slick". Still a capable airplane, since the mid 50s. We also used to call it the "fabulous four-engined fighter" LOL. I pulled a lot of Gs with an A/C that was the squadron commander and our chief navigator that flew together in Vietnam, through the Smoky Mountains! I will always love that airplane!

John Giambone - this is a great shot! Nice to see you've still got the eye for beautiful aircraft.
Love it!!!
