Default F35A encounter

My 1st LF tail code F-35A in NAS Ft worth last Sat. He came out to play and did quite a bit of option runs after making a 1.8 hrs flight with Chaser F_16 137.

Caught some great banking while he make those Low key and High key options.

Full report here

Airwingspotter.com | Spotting KNFW F-35A for Luke AFB

Here are some teasers

Moon shot.... not my best Moon shots but using 8.5 fps caught it at the right time

Gotta love new technology, that F35A is a cool bird, weird looking but cool. Great series Dave, but, the one with the moon is the winner, that's a wall hanger.

I'd clone out the lens flare in #1.

Regardless of what it is, it's still distracting and detracts for the photo in IMHO.

Let's put it like this. The f-35 is an air superiority fighter. Yet in this image, it has competition in the sky. See the metaphor and why you should clone it out?

But it's your image so present it how you'd like. I'm just being honest with you letting you know what my impressions of the image are.

I'd also clone the airliner. It doesn't improve the image.
Otherwise it's a great series. Love the moon shot.

Gorgeous photographs. I sorta wish we didn't have to pay for the plane though.
