"Three Pop Alpha, traffic 10 o'clock and a mile, C-5 heavy 1000' feet below you." "Yes sir, I've got him in sight and am getting the Canon out now!" Needless to say a lot of luck went into this one, I even got the top strobe going off!

Radar absorbant paint. Doesn't look to appealing but very effective in combat zone. HOOAH!!!

The focuss and apperture are very clear, which make the viewer feel comfortable and in detail.

I think I would be in shock if I ever saw this....might shock me at first, but it would be well worth it. You're lucky you had a camera with you.

Nice shot, but I hope there was a second pilot onboard serving as a safety pilot flying the airplane while you were futzing with the camera...

WOW! What a great photo! Nice job getting the strob going off too! My father worked on the C-5 at Honeywell Minneapolis back in the 1970's before he started work on the Space Shuttle in 1976/77
