Default Air Force Thunder Birds

Here is a photo of the Air Force Thunderbirds buzzying my house. This is the best that I could get today hand held. They move very fast. They are here for an air show.

Yes the f16 is very loud as it passes close to my house. But as I remember the f18's at last year's air show were a tad louder.

Here are some more photos of them taken from a deck on top of the second floor of my house with a hand held Canon G5X.

Thank you for viewing and commenting. I agree that they are definitely not perfect but I was surprised that I got anything at least half descent. They were making turns above my house and I had a time just keeping them in the field of view. I believe that it was the camera that was detecting the objects and then motion compensating them so that they did not turn out all motion blurred.
